Correlations between histocompatibility antigens at A and B loci, and onset subtypes were sought in 162 children with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). The antigen HLA-A2 was associated with pauciarticular JRA in girls. No significant correlations were determined with other onset subtypes or with chronic asymptomatic uveitis.
