Marion Bernard, Marielle Wathelet, Jessica Pilo, Clara Leroy, François Medjkane: gender identity and psychiatry

This study focuses on the frequency of comorbid psychiatric issues in trans adolescents with an associated diagnosis of gender dysphoria who are treated in the transidentity service of the CHRU of Lille. The study includes 43 patients, 72.1 % of whom have at least one associated psychiatric diagnosis, anxiety disorders being the most prevalent. This study provides confirmation of the great psychic, indeed psychiatric, vulnerability of this population.
