“…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.…”

“…The role of sunburns as risk factors for MN has been discussed controversially in literature. Sunburns were found to be associated significantly with the number of MN in children, 10,12,13,17,29,31,39,50 yet some studies could not demonstrate such an association. 19,28 In contrast to an earlier cross-sectional analysis, 19 the present longitudinal multivariate analysis identified history and the extent and severity of sunburns as significant risk factors for the development of new MN.…”

“…The median count of melanocytic nevi Ն2 mm in diameter was 11 (25th-75th percentiles, [5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22], and the corresponding median density was 7.1 (25th-75th percentiles, 3.2-14.3). The median nevus density was higher among boys than girls (7.72 vs. 6.77) with a relative geometric mean adjusted for phenotypic characteristics of 1.11 (95% CI 1.03-1.19).…”

“…13,28 Data from cross-sectional studies suggest that, while the number of nevi increases progressively with age up to adulthood, the ratio of the number of nevi to the body surface area (usually referred to as "nevus density") reaches a plateau between ages 9 and 14, pointing to nevus density as a possible genetic trait. 10,12,14 However, cross-sectional studies, especially if conducted over broad age ranges, may reflect cohort differences in nevus prevalence and degree of exposure to purported risk factors, e.g., ultraviolet light radiation, rather than and in addition to genuine age effects. The relation between the density of nevi in childhood and the density in adult life has not been fully elucidated.…”
