In this paper, we initiate the study of defective Ramsey numbers for the class of perfect graphs. Let PG be the class of all perfect graphs and R1PG(i,j) denote the smallest n such that all perfect graphs on n vertices have either a 1-dense i-set or a 1-sparse j-set. We show that R1PG(3,j)=j for any j≥2, R1PG(4,4)=6, R1PG(4,5)=8, R1PG(4,6)=10, R1PG(4,7)=13, R1PG(4,8)=15 and R1PG(5,5)=13. We exhibit all extremal graphs for R1PG(4,7)=13 (there are exactly three). We also obtain the 1-defective Ramsey number of order (4,7) in triangle-free perfect graphs, namely R1ΔPG(4,7)=12.
