Abstract

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 Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). According a cross-sectional descriptive study conducted in Mali, DS can occur at any age. However, it mainly affects young adults, and characterized by white patchy scales or thick crusts attached mainly on the scalp . Given its polymorphic clinical presentation and its association with HIV in 24.19%, systematic HIV testing in the presence of suggestive signs of SD should be strongly encouraged.
