Description Introduction: The overload of care takers of children with cancer has been applied from instruments that were designed for care takers of adults with Alzheimer; howe-ver,  there  is  no  clarity  about  this  concept  in  the  case  of  childhood  cancer  yet.  The  purpose of this review is to identify the peculiarities of the concept of work overload for the care takers of children with cancer. Methodology: A qualitative, integrative review  was  performed  through  the  analysis  of  21  articles  published  between  2012  and  2017,  in Spanish, English and Portuguese; the sample was obtained from the data bases Biblioteca Virtual en Salud (Virtual Library of Health) Scielo, Science Direct, Embase, Ovid y Scopus; the descriptors used were: Burden, Cancer, Children, Parents, Overload. Results: There were 5 subjects related to work overload from the care taker of a child with cancer, specially referring to dimensional overload in  the  physical,  psychological,  social,  economic  and  spiritual  levels.  Conclusions: Although  the  concept of overload has evolved to count with measuring instruments, the phenomena is particular for care takers of children with cancer due to the influence of family love and the social connotation of cancer; however, care takers have work overload and do not wish to abandon their job.
Keywords:  Care takers, child, neoplasm, cost of illness.
Introducción: La sobrecarga del cuidador de niños con cáncer se ha aplicado a partir de instrumentos que fueron diseñados para cuidadores de adultos con Alzheimer; sin embargo, aún no se tiene claridad acerca de este concepto en el caso del cáncer infantil. El propósito de esta revisión es identificar las peculiaridades del concepto de sobrecarga del cuidador del niño con cáncer. Metodología:  Se realizó una revisión integrativa cualitativa, mediante el análisis de 21 artículos publicados entre 2012 y 2017, en español, inglés y portugués; la muestra se obtuvo de las bases de datos Bi- blioteca Virtual en Salud, Scielo, Science Direct, Embase, Ovid y Scopus; se usaron los descriptores Burden, Cancer, Children, Parents, Overload.  Resultados: 5 fueron los temas relacionados con la sobrecarga del cuidador del niño con cáncer, especialmente en lo que se refiere al sobreesfuerzo dimensional a nivel: físico, psicológico, social, económico y espiritual.   Conclusión:  Aunque el concepto de sobrecarga ha evolucionado hasta contar con instrumentos de medición, el fenómeno se vive de manera particular en cuidadores de niños con cáncer debido a la influencia que tienen el amor parental y la connotación social del cáncer; no obstante, los cuidadores realizan sobreesfuerzos y no desean abandonar el cuidado.
