Systemic autoimmune diseases (SAD) result from a dysfunction of the immune system causing a break in self-tolerance. This study aims to describe the socio-demographic profile autoimmune diseases encountered in the rheumatology department of the Cocody University Hospital in the District of Abidjan. This is a retrospective study on clinical records of patients followed in the rheumatology department of the UHC of Cocody. The results show that evolution is marked by a predominance of women (94.55%) compared to men (5.45%). The majority of patients (75%) presented members of the age group [20-60] years. The patients came from diverse social strata, namely: 21.10 % were official, 17.43 % were housewives, 16.51 % were traders and students, 12.84 % had a liberal function and 3.67 % artisan. The results also showed that 8.18% of patients had a family history of rheumatism. Personal and obstetrical history was present in all the patients collected. Systemic autoimmune diseases have a socio-demographic impact.
