Özet

Objective: Human leukocyte antigen B27 (HLA-B27) is strongly associated with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). However, the association between clinical findings and HLA-B27 vary in terms of geographic area. This study aimed to determine the frequency of HLA-B27 positivity and its relationship with clinical findings.
