Definition

A severe form of mastocytosis characterized by abnormal proliferation and accumulation of mast cells in several organs, resulting in a systemic disease that may affect bone, gastrointestinal tract, lymphatics, spleen, and liver. In some cases, it is associated with a clonal hematologic non-mast-cell lineage disease, such as a myelodysplastic or myeloproliferative disorder. It can also lead to mast cell leukemia, which carries a high risk of mortality.
