A clinical psychiatric study o f twelve patients seeking sex change surgery is presented. The demographic data, clinical characteristics and the results of psychological testing are described. Unlike as in the Western countries, males and females were equally distributed in the study sample. The diagnosis of true trans­sexualism could be made in six cases. The alternative diagnoses were schizophrenia and sexual deviation. The aetiology of trans­sexuality, its diagnostic criteria, the differential diagnosis and the associated medico-legal and ethical problems are pointed out
