Description: Mastocytosis is a rare, heterogeneous disorder, of normal, active mast cells. The increase in mast cells is usually localised to the skin, but occasionally occurs in other organs as a systemic disorder. We report a case where systemic mastocytosis was diagnosed following biopsy of the femur during total knee replacement.
