Loose usage of the term "transsexualism" and limitations of the diagnostic categories "transsexualism," "transvestism," and "homosexuality" as applied to applicants for sex reassignment have created difficulties in evaluation, disposition, and follow-up. Patients falling into the gray areas between diagnostic categories are more common than those fitting existing typologies. A description of some patients from one series and a broader diagnostic scheme for their classification are offered.
