Abstract: Blood pressure is a condition whose frequency continues to increase in pediatric ages. This cardiovascular pathology is often secondary to another condition such as parenchymal kidney disease or aortic coarctation. The integration of blood pressure measurement into the routine pediatric examination made it possible to detect asymptomatic secondary hypertension as well as to identify new cases of primary hypertension in the child. The epidemic of childhood obesity tends to increase blood pressure and precipitates complications. Diagnosing this pathology and implementing a healthier lifestyle or medication as early as possible will help reduce morbidity and even mortality by avoiding the progression of high blood pressure to adulthood.
