    We investigate a class of non-local Hamilton-Jacobi equations arising in dislocation dynamics. The class of Hamilton-Jacobi equations treated here is a variation of those studied by N. Forcadel, C. Imbert and R. Monneau in [Discrete Contin. Dyn. Syst. 23 (2009) (3), 785-826], and the new feature lies in the singularity at the origin of the kernel functions which describe non-local effects. For the class of Hamilton-Jacobi equations, we establish some stability properties of (viscosity) solutions, comparison theorems between subsolutions and supersolutions and existence theorems of solutions.
