Abstract: We consider the groups which are infinitely definable in separably closed fields of finite degree of imperfection. We prove in particular that no new definable groups arise in this way: we show that any group definable in such a field $L$ is definably isomorphic to the group of $L$-rational points of an algebraic group defined over $L$.
