Cutaneous mastocytosis is divided into 3 subcategories: mastocytoma of the skin (1-3 solitary skin lesions), maculopapular cutaneous mastocytosis, also known as urticaria pigmentosa (as seen in our patient; usually [greater than or equal to] 4 lesions); and diffuse cutaneous mastocytosis (confluent lesions; leathery appearance of skin).
When mast cells replicate in higher than normal numbers, an MCT (also known as a mastocytoma) can form.
