Abstract
A 43-year-old man with extensive systemic mastocytosis with poor prognostic indicators but no overt hematologic abnormality is described. This patient 's clinical presentation and course are consistent with the newly proposed 'smoldering mastocytosis' category. Long-term follow-up of patients is need ed to determine whether they may be at higher risk for progression into mor e aggressive categories. Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
