Introduction: Sexual violence is a very big social and health issue, it sets up also as a gender and race problem, as it affects mainly girls and black girls; in addition, the crime is committed more than 90% of times by males. Sexual abuse is a harmful, humiliating, and traumatic experience to the physical and mental health of men and women with immediate and late consequences. Methods: A systematic literature search was performed according to guidelines in the PRISMA statement. Searches were conducted in PubMed. Keywords included combinations of the words "sex offenses" and children and Brazil. Results: The search strategy yielded 121 hits in PubMed, after applying exclusion and inclusion criteria, and after manual selection were retrieved 15 publications. Discussion: Machismo is still a very big social problem. It affects all social spheres of most of the Latin-American countries. Due to this matter, we can explain the underreporting of CSA in boys. The low notification of sexual violence against men is partly due to the toxic masculinity. Conclusion: More studies are needed, so health professionals, teachers and especially families can recognize early signs of CSA, besides that, public policies need to be implemented urgently in order to reduce these egregious cases.
