INTRODUCTION: Systemic mastocytosis is a rare hematologic disorder caused by infiltration of excessive mast cells throughout the body. The commonly involved organs are the skin, GI tract, and bone marrow. Based on our literature search, pulmonary involvement has only been reported eight times, with even fewer confirmed histopathologically. We present a patient with systemic mastocytosis and impressive thoracic manifestations.
