Abstract

Objective: Gender dysphoria is a condition where an individual is discontent with their assigned gender. Karyotyping is a part of the transition period before hormone therapy to detect the biological gender for most professionals in many countries. Thus, we discussed the requirements for chromosomal analysis of individuals with gender dysphoria considering clinical and genetic findings.
