In this Note we are interested in the dynamics of dislocation densities in a material submitted to a time periodic stress. The dislocation densities solve a set of two coupled first order equations of Burgers' type. Our main aim is to give a description of the long time behaviour of those densities. By an homogenization procedure in the framework of viscosity solutions, we obtain that at the limit, the dislocation densities fulfills a single diffusion equation.
