Abstract: Objective: To identify the prevalence and factors associated with osteoporosis in a group of patients of Santa Marta. Materials and Method: Retrospective descriptive and correlational study in a population of 406 patients from a total of 1486 consultants.

Statistical association was found between osteoporosis and diseases of the eye and adnexa (p= 0.0415), by classification International Council Disease.
