In brief: See below

Patients with cutaneous and indolent systemic mastocytosis have a favorable prognosis, over 95% of them life expectancy is not reduced.
In >50% of the cases of cutaneous mastocytosis in children, there is remission by the time the patient reaches adolescence. In adults it is generally chronic; only in a small proportion of patients with indolent systemic mastocytosis does it tend to regress.
