"If you are one of two affected siblings with parents OR families with
several AA members (at least 2). We are trying to collect AA families and
sib pairs for genetic linkage studies. However, we are also interested in
whether HLA genes in combination (DRB/DQ) or (DQA/DQB) determine alopecia
universalis. We will send you a consent form and have you send us blood
samples." To obtain the consent form or for further information write to
