Introduction: Hyperuricemia constitutes a risk for many organs and its prevalence is high ranging from 15-20% up to 35% in developing countries. HU relation to arterial hypertension was pointed out in the end of the XIX century and is recognized as independent cardiovascular risk factor. Thus HU is less studied in our environment which justifies our work to determine prevalence and with HU associated factors among hypertensive patients followed in the Cardiology department in the Mother Child Hospital “Le Luxembourg”. Methodology: It’s was a cross-sectional study in the Mother-Child Hospital “Le Luxembourg” in Bamako. All patients with complete labor tests were included making a sample of 51 hypertensive outpatients seen from July 2010 to January 2011. For any included patient, socio-demographic and biological variables were collected. In the same way a chest radiography, an ECG and an echocardiography were realized. Patients were asked about their knowledge about HU Hyperuricemia was defined as an uricemia > 420 μmol/l for men and 360 μmol/l for women. Microsoft Excel 2007 was used to gather data and SPSS version 12 to perform analyzes. Results: Mean age of the sample was 56,35 years, the sex-ratio Male: Female 0,76. Hyperuricemia, hypercreatininemia and hyperglycemia were found respectively in 66,7,33,3% and 23,5% of the cases. 78,4% of the patients had stated to have heard about hyperuricemia, 27,5% knew their hyperuricemia. The socio-demographic characteristics did not present a statistically significant difference. Conclusion: Hyperuricemia as a cardiovascular risk factor, had to be researched and managed more agressively. The very high proportion of patients with a hyperuricemia requires to detect it among hypertensive patients, to carry out an early treatment and thus to reduce the cardiovascular risk of the patient.
