Mastocytosis urticaria pigmentosa l.jpg
Mastocytosisurticaria pigmentosa

  • Local and systemic accumulations of mast cells

  • Persistent pigmented itchy skin lesions

  • Urticate on mechanical or chemical irritation

  • c-KIT mutation

  • Birth to middle age, ½ < 6 mo

Slide3 l.jpg

  • Macules, papules, nodules, plaques, vesicles

  • Lesions persist and gradually become chamois- or slate-colored

  • Darier’s sign, pruritis

  • Severe symptoms may result from massive liberation of histamine from mast cells after ingestion of known mast cell degranulators

  • Spontaneous resolution is likely in those pts whose disease began in childhood

Prognosis and treatment l.jpg
Prognosis and treatment

  • In all forms without systemic involvement the prognosis is good
