With a long time ago atherosclerosis it was considered a disease of the elderly and never imagined that could debut in youth. The reality is that the process of atherosclerosis start earlier comparative with what we believe in this moment. I will present a study conducted per 321 young hypertensive patients with age between 18-35 years per a period of three years 2007-2010, in the County Bihor, Romania. All these patients were investigate clinical and paraclinically. The results of the study shown that an increase percent of the young had dyslipidemia and risk for atherosclerosis. We must to discover also other predictive markers of atherosclerosis in youth excepting the dyslipidemia.
