We describe a new human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-Cw*07 allele that differs from Cw*0718 by a single-coding nucleotide. DNA-based genotyping identified a clinical sample from a Black African-American patient that differed from known Cw alleles. The allele was amplified independently with a haplo-specific primer and sequenced in its entirety.
