Learn about the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
There are two types of mastocytosis:
Cutaneous mastocytosis, or skin mastocytosis. This occurs when mast cells infiltrate the skin.
Systemic mastocytosis, which occurs when too many mast cells accumulate in the tissues. It can affect organs such as the liver, spleen, small intestine, and even bone marrow.
Our nationally-recognized allergy and immunology specialists perform unique consultative services to provide comprehensive clinical care to our patients.
