HLA class II alleles were investigated in 27 Czech patients (11 females and 16 males) with juvenile dermatomyositis. The immunogenetic investigation comprised determination of DRB1, DRB3, DRB5, DQA1, DQB1, and DPB1 alleles. Their prevalence was compared with that found in healthy Czech controls. No allele was found significantly more frequently in patients than in controls.
