    [Sun protection factor 50+ : Pro and contra].
    Hautarzt 2017 Apr 11. Epub 2017 Apr 11.
    Klinik und Poliklinik für Dermatologie und Allergologie, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, 80337, München, Deutschland.
    The use of sunscreens with sun protection factors beyond 50 is controversial. In order to avoid misleading the consumer, several countries have already decided not to declare SPF beyond 50 on sunscreen products. Arguments against high SPF include the following: the risk of imbalanced protection, which could increase the risk of damage caused by longer-wave ultraviolet radiation; imparting a false sense of safety, which could lead to the extension of sun exposure times; health risks from higher concentrations of filter substances; and the only marginally higher blockade provided by high SPF sunscreens.

    [Light protection for xeroderma pigmentosum].
    Hautarzt 2017 Apr 11. Epub 2017 Apr 11.
    Universitätsklinik für Dermatologie, Franz-Josef-Strauß Allee 11, 93053, Regensburg, Deutschland.
    Xeroderma pigmentosum is a rare autosomal recessive disorder which is caused by germinal mutations responsible for the repair of ultraviolet (UV) radiation-induced DNA lesions. It is characterized by hypersensitivity to UV radiation, poikiloderma, ocular surface disease, and in some patients pronounced sunburn and neurological disease. Patients have a very high risk of developing ocular and skin cancer on exposed body sites. Read More

    Kite-surfers' sun risk in the tropics.
    J Travel Med 2017 Mar;24(2)
    Department of Dermatology, CHU de Martinique (CHUM), Martinique, French West Indies.
    A preliminary inquiry, conducted on Martinique Island, sought to determine kite-surfers' sun-protection knowledge and behaviours. Results revealed good levels of knowledge and behaviours, but very frequent sunburns (74% had at least one sunburn during the last 6 months), with particularly severe sunburns exclusively among vacationers. These results argue for the double need to focus sunburn-prevention programs on vacationers and technically adapt sun-protection means to a tropical maritime environment. Read More
