Bone involvement is frequent in patients with systemic mastocytosis. Osteoporosis is the most prevalent bone manifestation, but diffuse osteosclerosis or focal osteolytic or osteosclerotic lesions are not infrequent. The risk of osteoporotic fractures is high, especially at the spine and in men. Routine measurements of bone mineral density and vertebral morphometry are warranted. The bone turnover markers indicate the involvement of complex bone metabolism in mastocytosis-related manifestations. Bisphosphonates represent the first-line treatment for osteoporosis-related mastocytosis.

Abstract

Bone involvement is frequent in patients with systemic mastocytosis. Osteoporosis is the most prevalent bone manifestation, but diffuse osteosclerosis or focal osteolytic or osteosclerotic lesions are not infrequent. The risk of osteoporotic fractures is high, especially at the spine and in men. Routine measurements of bone mineral density and vertebral morphometry are warranted. The bone turnover markers indicate the involvement of complex bone metabolism in mastocytosis-related manifestations. Bisphosphonates represent the first-line treatment for osteoporosis-related mastocytosis.
