Introduction: To assess the influence of hyperglycemia on the course of patients with acute macrovascular accidents, 73 patients admitted due to acute coronary syndrome or cerebrovascular accident were studied, independently of its diabetes mellitus (21,9%) or not. Methods: There were early complications (vascular, septic and death); authors determined the presence of glycemia at admission, fasting and postprandial, as well as the glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c). The means of each determination were estimated and the groups of patients complicated were compared with a satisfactory evolution. Results: There was found that fasting glycemia was associated with the worse prognosis (p = 0,004) even though all averages were higher in the complicated patients group. The lipid profile was not associated with complications after a macrovascular process. Conclusions: Fasting hypoglycemia, in diabetes rank was associated with a unfavourable course in the group of study patients.
