Mast Cell Activation Syndrome

What are the diagnostic criteria, symptoms and the effects of mast cell activation syndrome?

This is a complex disorder that needs to be managed by a team which can include an allergist and gastroenterologist. Please note that Dr. Weinstock has an interest in this syndrome but owing to time schedule and other factors, will only be able to add a new MCAS patients a few at a time and the waiting list for Dr. Weinstock is long.

Major Diagnostic Criteria for MCAS:

  • Classic symptoms of mast cell activation in ≥2 organ systems (skin, cardiovascular, nose, respiratory, GI, ocular, and/or history of anaphylaxis)

Minor Diagnostic Criteria for MCAS:

  • Response to MC therapy
  • Evidence of increased MC mediators
  • Focal or disseminated increased MC in BM and/or GI tract (CD117-, tryptase-, and CD25-MC express CD2 and/or CD25)
  • Spindle-shaped morphology in >25% of MC
