Title: Dissociation : Vol. 1, No. 2, p. 048-051 : A Case Of Concurrent Multiple Personality Disorder And Transsexualism
Author: Schwartz, Pearl G.
Abstract: A transsexual patient suffered a coexisting multiple personality disorder that was not diagnosed until after the completion of sexual reassignment surgery. This report reviews this patient 's history and experiences in psychotherapy. It is important to consider the possibility that the patient who presents with the features of a gender identity disorder may have a concomitant dissociative disorder. It is highly questionable whether a patient with both types of disorder should receive sexual reassignment surgery until the dissociative disorder has been treated to a successful resolution.
