Is there any support groups for mastocytosis in South Africa?

I do not have an answer for you. You could address your question to Prof Paul Potter at the UCT Allergy Unit. His email address is:

My daughter of 31 has just been diagnosed with this and is finding it difficult to get a doctor to support her management of the disease in the Durban area. Are there any specialists anywhere in SA who have experience in this?

Hi Jolene, not sure this will reach you. The easiest is to contact I don't think we have a support structure here, as the disease is so rare

Good day, I know this post is a bit old but was wondering if you managed to find any support groups for mastocytosis?
