After some hesitation by my partner's primary care trust, they have agreed to refer her to a Mastocytosis specialist. Since we live in Warwickshire (UK), our choices are Dr. Elisabeth Drewe at the Nottingham University Hospital, or Dr. Sophie Farooque/Dr. Clive Grattan at the Guy's and St Thomas' Trust in London.

mature mast cells
do you no How thay get in to the bone marrow

Part of what makes any call mature(red blood cell, white blood cell, Mast cell) is the communication it gets from the surrounding environment. When mast cells are developing, they mature in tissues at sites that they are programed to go to, sites of wound healing, and sites of allergic inflammation. When Mast cells mature in the bone marrow, it is because the cell thinks it is getting a signal telling it to become a mast cell. Many people with Mastocytosis have a mutation in KIT, which causes this errant signal. So finding mast cells in the bone marrow is abnormal, and is criteria for mastocytosis.
