Abstract This short text addresses several topics related to sun-damaged skin, ranging from basic photobiology, clinical photoaging, the histology of photodamaged skin, and skin cancer.

Most of the information is basic knowledge to practicing dermatologists. On the other hand, the material is probably beyond the scope of the lay reader. It would be quite useful for internists, family practitioners, and other nondermatologist physicians who have an interest in skin disease. Many of the clinical photographs are excellent.
