The young woman in Ben Tre Province who seemed to age overnight due to a suspected allergy has mastocytosis, the head of dermatology at the Ho Chi Minh City University medical center said after checking her Tuesday.

Mastocytosis is a disorder caused by the presence of too many mast cells which bring a number of symptoms like skin lesions, diarrhea, abdominal discomforts and other infections.

Hoang Van Minh said 26-year-old Nguyen Thi Phuong had cutaneous mastocytosis – the other being systemic – which caused fewer fatalities and could be cured.

When TuoiTre asked him if Phuong could regain her old appearance, he said there was no need for plastic surgery since the disease could be cured with medicines and laser treatment would reduce the wrinkles.

But he said only 50-70 percent cure was possible.

The first thing to do was to treat her allergy.

He remained concerned about other possible causes and said further tests, including a biopsy, needed to be done before he could give his final verdict.

Phuong’s travails began in 2008 when she had an allergic reaction to eating seafood. When western medicines did not work, she switched to Chinese traditional medicine. But soon her body began to swell and cracks appear on her hands, legs, underarms, and groin.

After a while her skin started to turn wrinkled and saggy, making the 23-year-old look like an old woman.
