Background:  Genetic factors are clearly attributed to the susceptibility of ankylosing spondylitis (AS). The human leucocyte antigen (HLA)‐B27 proved to be the very useful marker for diagnosing AS. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of HLA‐B27 subtypes in Taiwan and to investigate whether these subtypes may be of help in predicting the diagnosis of AS.
