Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is a disease described as having significant and frequent oral manifestations with an early onset character. Which could be a very interesting diagnostic clue. The odonto-stomatologist is therefore in the front line to detect the immunodeficiency caused by this pathology, even though the patient may be unaware of his condition or the aggravation of it, as was the case with our patient.
