Genetic factors in fibromyalgia (FM) syndrome

Although familial occurrence of fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) has been

commonly observed, data on a genetic role in this condition

are limited. A few studies have reported familial aggregation

and association with HLA. We have studied genetic linkage of

FMS with HLA in multicase families, and found a rather weak

linkage of FMS with HLA (P < 0.029).
