abstract

  • Frequencies of persons having particular HLA-A, -B, and -C antigens were compared for 113 urolithiasis clinic patients, a subset of 24 patients who had hypercalcuria , and 225 controls. The frequency of HLA- A30 was significantly elevated among the patients. A suggestion (S afwenberg et al. 1978) that HLA-B27 frequency is elevated among hypercalcuric patients with recurrent kidney stones was not confirmed.
