Figure 3: Photomicrograph of the biopsy specimen showing an increase in the melanin production in the basal layer of the stratified squamous epithelium. Some amount of melanin pigmentation can be seen in some regions of the lamina propria. There is no increase in the number of melanocytes per se or melanocytic atypia. Features corroborative of oral melanotic macule (H and E, ×40)
