Abstract

Typing for HLA‐A and ‐B antigens was performed on 87 children with definite juvenile dermatomyositis (JDMS). A significantly increased frequency of HLA‐B8 (estimated relative risk = 2.8, Pc < 0.01) was observed among White patients, but not among Blacks or Latin Americans with JDMS. No abnormality of HLA haplotype segregation was observed among 38 healthy siblings of the JDMS probands.
