The Fcγ receptor cluster on chromosome 1q23 contains a number of genes that may affect susceptibility to celiac disease, but previous studies have yielded contradictory results. We studied the FcγRIIa*A519G (rs1801274) and FcγRIIIa*A559C (rs396991) single nucleotide polymorphisms in celiac disease families from Hungary and Finland and in celiac disease case-control materials from Hungary and Italy. Neither the Hungarian nor the Italian case-control material or a meta-analysis of the combined case-control material showed significant single-marker or haplotype association. In addition, neither linkage nor family-based association tests showed evidence for association in the Finnish or Hungarian family material. This study thus does not support a previous publication showing FcγR association with celiac disease.
