ABSTRACT: Celiac disease (CD) patients lacking both human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DQ2.5 in cis (DQA1*05:01, -DQB1*02:01) or trans (DQA1*05:05, -DQB1*02:02) configuration and HLA-DQ8 (DQA1*03:01, -DQB1*03:02) are considered to be rare. Therefore, absence of these genotypes is commonly used to exclude the diagnosis of CD. To investigate whether this approach is justified, the HLA-distribution in 155 children with CD was studied. A total of 139 (89.7%) patients carried HLA-DQ2.5. Of the remaining patients 7 (4.5%) carried HLA-DQ8. Interestingly, the 9 (5.8%) patients lacking HLA-DQ2.5 and HLA-DQ8, carried HLA-DQA1*02:01, -DQB1*02:02 (HLA-DQ2.2). Therefore, HLA-DQ2.2 should be included as an important HLA-type related to CD.
