AbstractFc receptor like 3 gene (FcRL3) has been associated with some autoimmune diseases. Here, its role in Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) was evaluated by studying nine FcRL3 gene SNPs in a Chinese cohort of GBS patients. The frequencies of FcRL3-3-169C, FcRL3-6 intron3A, and FcRL3-8 exon15G alleles were significantly increased in GBS patients compared with healthy controls. The frequency of FcRL3-1 → 9 CCTGGAGAA haplotype was significantly increased, and the frequencies of FcRL3-1 → 9 CCTACAAAA,CCCACGAAA, and CCTGCGGAA haplotypes were significantly decreased compared with healthy controls. These results suggest that FcRL3 is associated with GBS incidence.
