HLA-B5 and HLA-B51 genes are essential parts of Behcet's disease. Therefore, a test that looks for these genes can help determine how the disease works. For example, HLA B5 splits into two parts, B51 and B52. 

When it comes to Behcet's disease, only B51 is vital in the cause of the disease. Behcet's disease is an inflammation of the wall of blood vessels that can affect the eyes, skin, and the rest of the body. It can also affect other parts of the body. So HLA-B5 and HLA-B51 genes play a significant role in how a disease starts. A positive result in the HLA- B51 test means that the risk of getting Behcet's disease goes up by six times.

Why done? 

Homozygotes of B51 have a very high risk of getting sick because of their many genes. B51 can tell a lot of different kinds of diseases apart. For example, in Behçet's disease, HLA B5 would be bad for the patient's vision. Patients who had a lot of ocular attacks had a much higher level of HLA B5 positivity than patients who had a few ocular attacks.
