Pigmentation is defined as the process of deposition of pigments in the tissues. It can be endogenous or exogenous in origin and may be physiological or pathological. Pigmentation is a common intraoral finding; various diseases can lead to varied discolorations of the mucosa. Diagnosis of pigmented lesions of the oral cavity is a challenging task, therefore understanding of the causes of mucosal pigmentation and appropriate evaluation of the patient are essential in the diagnosis of the pigmented lesions.
