Abstract (Translated): 
In this research are analyzed, from the perspective of the diseconomies of agglomeration, the effects of environmental pollution in related diseases in the Metropolitan Zone of the Valley of Mexico (ZMVM). Spatial econometrics is used to verify the increasing effects of air pollution on the spatial distribution of deaths in the ZMVM in 2010. The results obtained allow to establish that there is a positive and significant spatial relationship of the pollutant emissions PM10, PM2.5, SO2, CO, NOx, COT and COV in the number of deaths in the ZMVM, especially in ischemic heart diseases. Also, the evidence obtained shows that in acute myocardial infarctions there is no direct relationship with air pollutants.
