Systemic Mast Cell Disorders
Abstract:Systemic mast cell diseases, including systemic mastocytosis and mast cell leukemia, and their possible etiologies are reviewed. Urticaria pigmentosa is considered a disease in which mast cell numbers are increased only in the skin. Idiopathic anaphylaxis, a syndrome characterized by anaphylactic episodes without apparent exogenous trigger, is presented as a disorder resulting from mast cell degranulation of unknown etiology.
