Abstract: Primary Care is the main scenery where promotion of health and various levels of prevention take place. Overdiagnosis and overtreatment are a major health, social and economic problems, both regarding its incidence and its morbimortality. Is at this point where Quaternary Prevention acts and has begun to gain importance, a concept of prevention that tries to avoid unnecessary or excessive diagnosis, interventions and treatments; and that is increasing its value in Family Doctors clinical practice. The purpose of the current bibliographic research is to analyze, through medical articles and grey literature, the state-of-the-art of this new way of prevention.
