Abstract

MAGLIANO, Julio et al. Revisión del tema Fotoprotección en los niños. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.2, pp.98-103. ISSN 1688-1249.

Summary  Skin cancer is the type of cancer whose incidence rate has increased the most in the world. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) during childhood and adolescence plays an important role in the future development of skin cancer, since children properly protected from UVR have 78% lower risk of developing skin cancer in their adult lives. Sun protection measures are recommended for all ages, but in children and young people it should be more intense since children are more susceptible than adults to UV radiation

Keywords : ULTRAVIOLET RAYS; SUNSCREENING AGENTS; SKIN NEOPLASMS.
