Children of the Dark (Children of the Night) (Xeroderma Pigmentosum)

Dr. Kennedy
“Children of the dark” or “Children of the night” are terms applied sometimes to children with xeroderma pigmentosum, a genetic disease with such extraordinary sensitivity to sunlight that ordinary sun exposure results in the development of skin cancer at a very early age. Children with xeroderma pigmentosum can only play outdoors safely after nightfall.
