In general dental practice, a dentist may come across various pigmented lesions in oral cavity. In most cases, the lesions are asymptomatic and benign in nature. However, rarely, a pigmented lesion can be a sign of malignancy. We report a case of a pigmented lesion in mandibular gingiva to highlight the importance of biopsy for early diagnosis and prolonged survival of patients.
