MCAS (Mast Cell Activation Syndrome) and histamine intolerance are two distinct medical conditions that are the result of an abnormal response to histamine.  Although both conditions share similar symptoms, the underlying mechanisms differ, and proper diagnosis and treatment are necessary.

MCAS occurs when mast cells, a type of immune cell, become overactive and release excessive amounts of histamine and other inflammatory substances in response to triggers that would not normally cause a reaction.  Histamine intolerance on the other hand is a condition in which the body has difficulty breaking down histamine.  You can experience histamine intolerance and MCAS in combination to each other or you can experience one or the other condition on their own.
