Abstract Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection prevalence rate is estimated at 1.4\% in Senegal, and about 3,000 children could be infected. HIV positive children are followed up since 2000 in Albert Royer Hospital (Dakar, Senegal). OBJECTIVES: To describe clinical and epidemiological aspects of HIV paediatric infection, and to evaluate the implementation of high active antiretroviral therapy in HIV positive children in our country. POPULATION AND METHODS: Over a period of three years, the medical reports of 98 infected patients have been collected, 96\% with HIV 1 infection. RESULTS: Most of the patients had a maternally transmitted HIV infection (99\%). At their enrollment, the median age was 60 months; malnutrition (79\%), persistent lymphadenopathy (65\%) and skin lesions (64\%) were the common clinical manifestations. Thirty-nine percent of the patients were in class C (CDC) and 81\% had CD4 cell count< or =25\%. Median viral load were 421,852 copies/ml at presentation. Seven infants had a rapid progressive disease with encephalopathy. Thirty-six patients received high active antiretroviral therapy with high observance and good tolerance. CONCLUSION: This study allowed to define clinical and biological profile of paediatric HIV infection in our country and to update the implementation of high active antiretroviral therapy.
