Author information

Department of Dermatology, New Jersey Medical School, Newark, NJ, USA.

Outdoor workers have higher annual exposure to ultraviolet light. We will review the topic of actinic keratoses among these individuals as this common rudimentary form of superficial cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is explored in greater detail.
