Solitary mastocytoma: A rare presentation on the buccal mucosa
Abstract: Mastocytoma usually presents as a solitary lesion whereas mastocytosis is a rare skin condition which typically manifests with or without accompanied systemic symptoms. Although a few cases of solitary mastocytoma have been documented on mucosa (vulva), none has been reported on the oral mucosa in the English literature. The present case is an example of an exceptional rare presentation of solitary mastocytoma of the oral mucosa.
