Resumen: Introduction: Skin tears (ST) are the loss of the skin, the result of friction, loss of weight, the degree of damage, the cause of the epidermis of the dermis or the separation of both structures. Some studies predict a prevalence between 4,5% and 19,5% for all age groups in people living in the community. Objective: To know the incidence of skin tears in the health area of Pola de Siero, the type of injuries and the mechanisms related to the production of lesions. Material and methods: Observational, descriptive study. Risk factors (RF) were documented during 4 and a half months in 8 nursing consultations that included 10,739 people eligible for study. Results: 32 ST were identified, all individuals had at least one RF, 45% were independent. Trauma 59% was the most common damage mechanism and the most common location was the 56% leg. Type 2 the most numerous, with 62,5%. The incidence rate was 0,79 (CI: 0,55- 1,13) injuries per 100 people / year for the general population and 6,31 (CI: 4,09-9,32) injuries for each 100 people/ year for people of 80 years or more.
