A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 53 hipertensive patients was carried out. They were assisted in "Carlos Juan Finlay" Teaching Polyclinic in Santiago de Cuba during 2015, aimed at determining, by means of the Cockcroft-Gault equation, the grade of chronic renal disease that they presented. In the series the grade 2 of the disease in those over 60 years, in those that had a diagnosis time among 11-15 years and in emale sex prevailed. The mostly found comorbidities were the type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disorders; also, as main risk factors the use of nephrotoxic drugs (anti-inflammatory non steroids), dyslipemia, anemia and obesity prevailed. The use of this equation is very useful in the primary care, which allows to indicate the opportune treatment and actions taking to prevent the progression of this disease.

Key words: chronic renal disease, hypertension, Cockcroft-Gault equation, primary health care.
