Noncirrhotic portal fibrosis is a common cause of portal hypertension in India. We report four families with more than one member afflicted with this disorder. Six of the seven (85.5%) patients in whom HLA studies were carried out were HLA‐DR 3 positive. The possibility of an immunogenetic basis of noncirrhotic portal fibrosis should be investigated further.
