A 43 year-old woman presented with fever, abdominal pain, epato-splenomegaly, ascites, cholestasis, anemia, thrombocytopenia and previous diagnosis of sclerosing cholangitis based on liver biopsy and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography(ERCP). The bone marrow biopsy and the revision of liver biopsy using antitryptase stain diagnosed systemic mastocytosis. Because of the aggressive course of the disease the patient was treated with an acute myeloid leukaemia chemotherapy regimen without success.
