Soit $M$ une variété hyperbolique de volume fini, nous montrons que les hypersurfaces équidistantes à une sous-variété $C$ de volume fini totalement géodésique s'équidistribuent dans $M$. Nous donnons une asymptotique précise du nombre de segments géodésiques de longueur au plus $t$, perpendiculaires communs à $C$ et au bord d'un voisinage cuspidal de $M$. Nous en déduisons des résultats sur le comptage d'irrationnels quadratiques sur $\mathbb{Q}$ ou sur une extension quadratique imaginaire de $\mathbb{Q}$, dans des orbites données des sous-groupes de congruence des groupes modulaires.

Let $M$ be a finite volume hyperbolic manifold. We show the equidistribution in $M$ of the equidistant hypersurfaces to a finite volume totally geodesic submanifold $C$. We prove a precise asymptotic formula on the number of geodesic arcs of lengths at most $t$, that are perpendicular to $C$ and to the boundary of a cuspidal neighbourhood of $M$. We deduce from it counting results of quadratic irrationals over $\mathbb{Q}$ or over imaginary quadratic extensions of $\mathbb{Q}$, in given orbits of congruence subgroups of the modular groups.
