Overview


What is HLA B-27, Flowcytometry?

This is a marker which is used to evaluate if you are suffering from certain auto immune disorders like ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis or anterior uveitis.

  1. If you have acute or chronic pain and inflammation in the spine, neck, chest, eyes or joints and the doctor is suspecting an autoimmune disorder 
  2. If you have recurrent uveitis

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
