Cutaneous mastocytosis is a condition characterized by increased numbers of mast cells in the skin. Atypical clinical features may mimic impetigo, Langerhans cell histiocytosis, and carcinoid syndrome; however, only 1 case of scarring alopecia associated with mastocytosis has been reported. We present a case of cutaneous mastocytosis associated with alopecia areata in a 9-year-old Iranianboy. This case showed an atypical clinical presentation of mastocytosis, but histopathological results confirmed the diagnosis of cutaneous mastocytosis.
