Mastocytosis is a rare disease characterized by clonal proliferation of mast cells in different organs. Clinical manifestations of mastocytosis are mostly due to the release of mediators from mast cells and, in many cases such as urticaria, flushing, angioedema and anaphylaxis, are expression of biological effects of mediators on endothelial cells. Chronic secretion of mediators in patients with mastocytosis may lead to alteration of endothelial function.

Abstract

Mastocytosis is a rare disease characterized by clonal proliferation of mast cells in different organs. Clinical manifestations of mastocytosis are mostly due to the release of mediators from mast cells and, in many cases such as urticaria, flushing, angioedema and anaphylaxis, are expression of biological effects of mediators on endothelial cells. Chronic secretion of mediators in patients with mastocytosis may lead to alteration of endothelial function.
