Core Tip This clinical case describes an interesting and uncommon case of aggressive systemic mastocytosis with hepatic and gastrointestinal involvement. It illustrates not only a rare cause of non-cirrhotic portal hypertension, but also an atypical gastrointestinal involvement. The aim of this case report is to demonstrate the challenge in establishing a diagnosis of systemic mastocytosis especially when the clinical picture is atypical and without skin involvement, and alert Gastroenterologists to consider infiltrative diseases, as differential diagnosis in a clinical case of portal hypertension of unknown etiology.
