OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship of poststreptococcal reactive arthritis (ReA) to other forms of ReA and rheumatic fever by comparing the frequency of HLA-B27 and DRB1 alleles in these diseases. METHODS The diagnosis of poststreptococcal ReA was established in 25 children seen in a pediatric rheumatology clinic. HLA-B27 and DRB1 genotyping was performed in 18 of the white American patients. The DRB1 genotyping results were compared with those in 33 patients with rheumatic fever and 190… CONTINUE READING
