A theoretical review was conducted on the emotions as a category, from its relation and influence on health. The high blood pressure is one of the many diseases in which the psychological factors have a significant role in its origin and evolution. Authors emphasize the researches carried out using pediatric age hypertensive patients, where the emotions have been wholly treated due its involvement in the health-disease process. Included in the more studied emotions are the anxiety, depression and the anger.
