Treatment for telangiectasia macularis eruptiva perstans (TMEP) is often challenging due to lack of an established first-line therapy and as such is primarily focused on symptomatic relief. Omalizumab shows promise as a potential therapy for mast cell disorders; however, its efficacy in TMEP is yet to be established. This case describes a 72-year-old woman with chronic refractory TMEP achieving symptomatic remission within 4 months of commencing omalizumab therapy.
