Seborrheic dermatitis (SD) is a chronic inflammatory dermatosis evolving by relapse-remission, having a predilection for areas rich in sebaceous glands. The prevalence of seborrheic dermatitis is estimated at about 3% and is higher in patients infected with the Virus of the Immunodeficiency Humaine. According to the cross-sectional study conducted descriptively conducted in Mali, although DS can occur at any age, it mainly affects young adults, and is characterized by scales sitting on the scalp. Given its polymorphic clinical presentation and its association with HIV in 24.19%, systematic HIV testing in the presence of signs suggestive of A DS should be strongly encouraged.
