Answer

Liver findings include possible hepatomegaly, which is present in 40% of adult patients with systemic mastocytosis.

Spleen findings include possible splenomegaly, which is present in 50% of patients with systemic mastocytosis.

Cardiovascular findings include hypotension and tachycardia.

Gastrointestinal findings include abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting, and weight loss (frequency of involvement currently uncharacterized in patients with systemic mastocytosis). [28]
