A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 3 382 aged persons belonging to the health area of "Frank País García" University Polyclinic from Santiago de Cuba, was carried out during the first semester of the 2011, aimed at evaluating some interest variables related to the abuse to this populational group. The younger members of the case material were the most affected, with higher frequency of psychological damage, negligence and family-financial damage (in that order), while the older ones suffered, physical abuses and economic scarcities, in lower quantity. Also, the male sex was mostly damaged in almost all the offense forms and the family constituted, in general, the main perpetrator of the ill-treatment to the elderly, from which children and grandchildren were mainly those committing abuse.
