Mastocytosis is a heterogeneous group of disorders with increase in mast cells in the skin and other extracutaneous organs. Mastocytosis is seen in children and adults. Cutaneous mastocytosis is more common in children than systemic forms. Among the cutaneous form urticaria pigmentosa is the most common type of mastocytosis seen in children. There is a tendency of regression with age. Childhood onset mastocytosis has a good prognosis. Counseling forms a major role in the management of pediatric-onset mastocytosis.
