Systemic mastocytosis (SM) is a rare disease that can be difficult to diagnose because the clinical presentation and severity of symptoms varies by patient and sub-type of the disease and symptoms are non-specific. In almost all SM patients, a KIT D816V mutation is believed to be the primary driver of disease. If you have a patient with SM or whom you suspect has SM, the links below provide additional resources and information on the disease.*
