Objective: to determine visceral fat and metabolic profile in hypertensive men with and without obesity. Methods: analytic cross-sectional study was carried out. Thirty hypertensive men with obesity and 30 hypertensive men without obesity from a primary care clinic. Visceral and subcutaneous fat (by computer axial tomography), anthropometry, lipid profile, fibrinogen, and glucose (fasting and 2 hr after glucose load) were measured. Results: hypertensive obese men were younger (48 ± 7 versus 57 ± 6 years) who had higher values of blood pressure, lipids and lipoproteins, waist and hip circumference and total abdominal and subcutaneous fat (420 versus 321 cm², p < 0.001; and 257 versus 162 cm², p = 0.03). Visceral fat was similar in both groups (163 versus 162 cm²). The non obese group had higher levels of glucose either fasting and post glucose load. Both groups had increased mean values of fibrinogen and triglycerides and low concentrations of HDL-c. Conclusions: hypertension was associated with increased visceral fat, regardless the BMI. Although obese hypertensive men were younger, they had a metabolic profile more deleterious than non obese men.
