Abstract

Bullous mastocytosis is an unusual expression of mastocytosis typically seen in young children, and many causes of the acute mast cell degranulation with bulla formation have been identified. We report a 6-month-old boy with urticaria pigmentosa and an extensive bullous eruption associated with the ingestion of a nonprescription cough suppressant containing dextromethorphan. The pathogenesis of mastocytosis and the care of patients with this disease are discussed.
