The presence of HLA/B27 is associated with certain autoimmune and immune-mediated diseases including ankylosing spondylitis, which causes the inflammation of the bones in your spine or we can say in the spinal cord. Reactive arthritis, which causes inflammation of your joints, urethra, and eyes, and sometimes lesions on your skin.

What is HLA/B27?

The observation and study say that HLA/B27 associated uveitis is a distinct entity characterized by a male predominance and frequent association with seronegative arthritic syndromes, such as ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease.

Which disease is associated with HLA/B27

In addition to ankylosing spondylitis, HLA/B27 is implicated in other types of seronegative spondyloarthropathy as well, such as reactive arthritis (formerly known as Reiter’s Syndrome), certain eye disorders such as acute anterior uveitis and iritis, psoriatic arthritis, and ulcerative colitis-associated spondyloarthritis. The shared association with HLA-B27 leads to increased clustering of these diseases.

If the person has symptoms such as chronic pain, inflammation, and degenerative changes to bones (as seen on X-ray), then it supports a diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, or another autoimmune disorder that is associated with the presence of HLA/B27.

If your blood test results are negative, which means you don’t have HLA/B27 in your blood. A positive test means HLA/B27 was found in your blood. You may have a higher-than-average risk of developing or having certain autoimmune diseases, like ankylosing spondylitis and reactive arthritis.
