Systemic mastocytosis is a rare clonal stemm cell disease occurring in different manifestations: aggressive systemic mastocytosis, smouldering mastocytosis and indolent mastocytosis. In this study wb-MRI was employed to detect the various manifestations of systemic mastocytosis which allowed to safely differentiate between the subtypes of the disease.
