Full text


The neuroectodermic tumor is a malignant neoplasia of the round cells originated from the neural crest. The head and neck occurrence of the tumor is rare. We communicated a 5 months old Mexican patient with a primitive neuroectodermic tumor in the jaw.

Key words: Primitive neuroectodermal tumor, neoplasia.
