Description: The HLA-B27 test is primarily used to help strengthen or confirm a suspected diagnosis of immune disorders. This is NOT a definitive test that can be used to diagnose or rule out a disorder. It is used as one piece of evidence in a constellation of signs, symptoms, and lab tests to support or rule out the diagnosis of certain autoimmune disorders, such as Amkylosing Spondylitis, urveitis and several other autoimmune disorders.

Alternate Name(s): Human Leukocyte Antigen B27
