A case of bipolar disorder and transsexualism is reported and discussed. The case report shows the problematic nature of the distinction between transsexualism and psychosis-induced transsexual desires. If there is a true comorbidity of these disorders, a subtly differentiated process to guide medical expert opinion and therapy is necessary.
