Abstract

There is very little information in literature about oral melanosis not associated with racial

pigmentation or secondary to other syndromes. Various stimuli that can result in an increased production

of melanin at the level of mucosa include trauma, hormones, radiation, and medications. Three such cases

are reported in which stimulus for melanosis was mechanical trauma in form of smoking.
