Abstract

Purpose of Investigation: Recognition of transgender individuals is increasing and so should physicians’ knowledge concerning the appropriate management to ensure the best possible care for these patients. Materials and Methods: Comprehensive case study with guidelines analysis. Results: The case of a 17-year-old female patient is presented. The patient had a previous medical history of left adnexectomy and chemotherapy due to an ovarian dysgerminoma yolk sac tumor. The current problem relates to gender identity formation disorders. The patient requires continuation of multidisciplinary examination, and is under the care of doctors and psychologists. The problem is not only gynecological. Conclusion: This patient’s case indicates that psychosexual development may be neglected over oncological history of ovarian malignancy.
