HLA typing in actinic prurigo.
ABSTRACT 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: A number of dermatological diseases are associated with distinct HLA types. These associations vary in different populations and ethnic groups. HLA determination can be related to different disease courses, various anatomical predilection sites and can be used as a diagnostic tool. However, the pathogenic role of HLA in susceptibility to specific dermatological diseases often remains unclear.Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology 07/2006; 1(4):247 - 254. · 2.69 Impact Factor
