Abstract

After demonstrating antibodies to the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), twq hundred patients were interviewed and given a complete cutaneous and mucous membrane examination. By means of the Walter Reed Staging Classification System for HIV infection, 155 patients were classified as having Walter Reed stage 1A–2A (WR1A–WR2A) infection. The prevalence of seborrheic dermatitis in this group was 36%. There were no other significant cutaneous findings in the WR1A–WR2A patient population.
