Thirty‐eight unrelated Caucasian patients with Ewing's sarcoma were typed for HLA–A and B locus antigens. Although no significant differences in the distribution of these antigens were found in comparison with local controls, a trend towards increases in HLA–B8 and Aw19 complex antigens was noted. Although American blacks are only rarely affected by this tumor, the two black patients we typed both had the HLA–Aw19 complex antigen, Aw31. This suggests that a disease susceptibility factor may be in linkage disequilibrium with HLA–Aw19 complex HLA antigens.
