There are hormonal therapies (HT) and gender affirming surgeries (GAS). 3 Professionals involved in the care of persons with GD largely follow the standards of care developed by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) which are based on a somatic and a mental health assessment (MHA) before the initiation of a medical treatment for GD. 3 The role of the MHA is to confirm that the patient fulfills DSM or ICD criteria for GD or GI and to exclude that the gender incongruence is not accounted for by a mental disorder or other conditions. 3 Specialists suggest that the differential diagnosis must investigate conditions such as simple nonconformity to gender roles, body dysmorphic disorder, transvestic disorder or gender-themed delusions occurring in psychotic disorders. ...
