FERNANDEZ RODRIGUEZ, María  and  GARCIA-VEGA, Elena. Emergence, evolution and difficulties of the transsexualism diagnosis. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.113, pp.103-119. ISSN 2340-2733.

A historical path is made through the different reviews of the International Classification of Diseases (I.C.D.) and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (D.S.M.). The aim is to analyze the emergence of the transsexualism diagnosis and its evolution into the classifications currently in force (I.C.D.-10) and ( D.S.M.-IV-TR). Finally, some of the difficulties found during the diagnostic process will be presented.

Keywords : Transsexualism; Diagnosis; Gender identity disorder.
