Transsexualism is a rare disorder with an uncertain aetiology. Recently, biological factors have been considered to be important in its occurrence. The relationship of transsexualism with psychosis is not known; in most cases no specific relationship exists, though few cases of symptomatic transsexualism have been reported. In the following case, cross dressing and homosexual orientation was present from an early age, but gender dysphoria became manifest only after the onset of an acute psychotic episode. The implications of such a finding are discussed.
