Skin injury caused by radiation is one of the major complications suffered by malignant tumor patients receiving radiation therapy. The mechanisms underlying skin injury by radiation involve apoptosis genes, cytokines, cell signal pathways, etc. Therefore, this paper is to summarize the mechanisms of radiation skin injury.

Key words: Radiation skin injury, Apoptosis genes, Cytokines, Extracellular matrix and matrixmetallopro- teinases, Cell signal pathways
