Interpreting HLA B-27, Flowcytometry results

Interpretations

  • Positive HLA B27 test along with features of chronic pain, inflammation, changes in bones as seen on X ray usually supports a diagnosis of ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis or another auto immune disorder 
  • Negative HLA B27 test does not necessarily mean that you are not suffering from the suspected auto immune disorder since this marker is not positive in all patients
  • The results of HLA B27 should always be correlated with patient’s history and radiologic findings
