HLA typing in Actinic Prurigo
Department of Medicine, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada.Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (Impact Factor: 4.45). 07/1990; 22(6 Pt 1):1019-23. DOI: 10.1016/0190-9622(90)70144-7
Thirty-two actinic prurigo patients of Cree ancestry underwent human lymphocyte antigen (HLA) typing and were compared with 32 control subjects of Cree ancestry. We found a significantly increased frequency of HLA-A24 and Cw4 antigens and a significant decrease in the frequency of the A3 antigen in actinic prurigo patients. These HLA associations may be helpful in determining whether actinic prurigo is a distinct disease or a variant of polymorphous light eruption.

ABSTRACT: Human leukocyte antigen typing of 41 white patients with polymorphous light eruption (limited concept) showed no significant differences when compared with the typing of 51 white control subjects. We previously found that actinic prurigo, an idiopathic photodermatosis particularly associated with Amerindians, has a positive association with antigens A24 and Cw4 and a negative association with A3. We suggest, on the basis of both laboratory and clinical findings, that polymorphous light eruption (limited concept) and actinic prurigo are two different and distinct diseases.Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology 05/1991; 24(4):570-3.
