One of the first signs of disease of most children infected with HIV is oral. Some of them are a preview of the disease evolution and the appearance of AIDS. The purpose of this paper is to establish the oral health of HIV infected Uruguayan children at the Centro Nacional de Referencia Obstétrico-Pediátrico VIH- SIDA of the Centro Hospitalario Pereira Rossell. 76 children from ages 1 to 17 were examined, the average age was 7,5. The DMF-s in the deciduous dentition group was 4,52±6,2. The dmf-s in the mixed dentition group was 4.42 ±3,35 and the DMF-s was 1,28±1,72. The DMF-s in the permanent group was 2,8±2,4. On the total, malocclusions occurred in 51,8% and gingivitis in 75%. Candidiasis prevailed in 16% of the population, herpetic lesions in 8%, parotid hyperplasia 11,6%, and oral hairy leukoplakia 2,4% and there was one case of ANUG (0,7%)
