ESTRELLA, V et al. Solitary cutaneous mastocytosis: A case report. Rev. argent. dermatol. [online]. 2015, vol.96, n.1, pp.63-67. ISSN 1851-300X.

We report a 16 month years old female, with a 14 months history of a single erythematous, L shaped well-delimited plaque located on her upper back. Darier sign was positive. Histopathology revealed interstitial edema. The Giemsa staining showed mast cells. The diagnosis of a solitary mastocytoma was performed. Solitary mastocytoma is a benign tumoral lesion, that represents approximately 15% of cutaneous mastocytosis.

Keywords : Mastocytoma; Cutaneous mastocytosis; Darier sign.
