“…Nevi were concentrated on areas of the body classified as chronically exposed to the sun, specifically the face and neck and lateral arms, which supports the idea that chronic sun exposure plays a role in nevogenesis. Most previous research supports the finding that nevus density is higher in chronically sunexposed areas (arms or face and neck) than in intermittently exposed areas (back, chest, or legs), although there is some variation in this finding, especially when analysis is restricted to nevi >2 mm (14)(15)(16)(24)(25)(26)(27). Almost all of the nevi in our population were <2 mm (93%).…”

“…This pattern is commonly reported, although the lateral upper arm difference is not always detected (16,24,25,27). It has been proposed that sex differences may result from socialization of each gender in the amount of time spent in outdoor recreation and clothing habits (14). Higher nevus density on chronically exposed areas in boys has been attributed to the tendency of boys to spend more time outside, but in our study, boys and girls spent similar amounts of time outside.…”

“…10,[12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19] There are indications that both continuous and intense intermittent exposure are important. Topographic variations in the density of nevi with higher values in body areas chronically exposed to the sun, as documented by us and several other studies, 14,19,31 point to a role for continuous sun exposure. On the other hand, the relation between nevus density and history and number of sunburns in infancy 10,12,13 indicates that intense intermittent exposure, a modality that appears to also play a major role in the development of malignant melanoma, may be important as well.…”

“…17 In contrast in regions with less intense solar radiation like Europe and Canada, number and distribution of MN in children was found to be related to exposure to high ultraviolet light doses in holidays. 13,15,21,31,39 In our current study, the incidence of MN was significantly associated with duration of sun exposure at home with mild to moderate levels of ultraviolet radiation as well as with high levels of sun exposure during holidays in sunny climates.…”
