A 59-year-old transexual (male to female) patient presented with a squamous cell carcinoma of the larynx. She underwent an F-FDG PET/CT for initial staging. The examination showed high F-FDG uptake of the primary lesion and a homolateral lymphadenopathy. Incidental heterogeneous uptake of round hyperdense lesions in the gluteal muscles and subcutaneous fat was visualized. The medical history revealed secondly that the patient had had free liquid silicone injections 30 years before the examination. Although the injection of free silicone is not practised since the 1980s, this incidental finding should prompt to check the patient's medical history over several decades...

OBJECTIVE: There exist significant health disparities among both lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual (LGBT) and disability persons; however, there is a dearth of information regarding the subjective health experiences of LGBT persons living with disabilities (LGBTPWD). As such, the purpose of this study was to understand how LGBTPWD subjectively defined and characterized the meaning of health in their lives. METHOD: Using qualitative content analyses procedures outlined by Elo and Kyngäs (2008), we conducted a secondary data analysis using a larger questionnaire study that was administered via the Internet...

INTRODUCTION: It is known that a single prevention strategy is not enough to control multiple HIV epidemics around the world and in Brazil. However, it is not only necessary to recognize the importance of condoms as part of the policy of HIV/AIDS prevention but also discuss its limits. In this article, we aim to investigate the use of condoms in Brazil, draw critical reflections, and understand how they can once again be highlighted in Brazil's prevention strategy going forward. METHODS: A narrative review of literature was conducted using keywords in PubMed...

In the era of highly active antiretrovirals, people living with HIV (PLWH) have resumed sexual activity in the context of longer and healthier lives, and thus the chances of transmitting the HIV virus, as well as the potential to be re-infected also increase. HIV treatment optimism has been found to be associated with sexual risk behaviors among PLWH in different settings. A cross sectional survey was conducted to examine the relationship between treatment optimism, safer sex burnout and consistent condom use as well as variables associated with treatment optimism in a sample of PLWH on antiretrovirals (ARVs) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (n = 604)...

A recent study indicated a suicide attempt rate of 41 % among trans (e.g., trans, transgender, transexual/transsexual, genderqueer, two-spirit) individuals. Although this rate is alarming, there is a dearth of literature regarding suicide prevention for trans individuals. A vital step in developing suicide prevention models is the identification of protective factors. It was hypothesized that social support from friends, social support from family, optimism, reasons for living, and suicide resilience, which are known to protect cis (non-trans) individuals, also protect trans individuals...

Transsexualism is defined as a strong conviction of belonging to the opposite sex in individuals without any physical intersex condition. Cross-sex hormone therapy is an important component of medical treatment of transexuals but it is not exempt from adverse effects. We report a case of a meningioma in a male-to-female transsexual patient treated with estrogens and cyproterone acetate for the past 4 years. He claimed recently severe headache and visual impairment. Blood tests showed normal results. A contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan revealed a mass in the tuberculum sellae consistent with a meningioma...

The aim of the present study was to determine the current situation of healthcare for transexualism in the publicly-funded health service in Spain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A descriptive study based on data provided by the Spanish Society of Endocrinology Group on Identity and Sexual Differentiation was performed...

Transsexuality in Iran has gained much attention and media coverage in the past few years, particularly in its questionable depiction as a permitted loophole for homosexuality, which is prohibited under Iran's Islamic-inspired legal system. Of course, attention in the West is also encouraged by the “shock” that sex change is available in Iran, a country that Western media and society delights in portraying as monolithically repressive. As a result, Iranian filmmakers inevitably have their own agendas, which are unsurprisingly brought into the film making process—from a desire to sell a product that will appeal to the Western market, to films that endorse specific socio-political agendas...

The desire for self-mutilation in the absence of any discernible psychopathology is relatively rare. Self-mutilation is most commonly a manifestation of an underlying psychopathology such as depression, schizophrenia, personality disorder, transexuality, body dysmorphic disorder and factitious disorder. In this article, a case in which a 29-year-old single Kenyan lady of African origin demanded a surgical operation to modify and reduce the size of her external genitalia is presented. Although female genital mutilation is still widespread in the country, this case is of interest in that the woman did not seek the usual circumcision but sought to specifically reduce the size of her labia minora so that she could feel like a normal woman...

UNLABELLED: The word <apotemnophilia> was created in 1977. It was first used to describe an extreme paraphilia concerning both the search for amputees as sexual partners, and the fantasies and wishes to be amputated linked to a sexual arousal. CLINICAL FINDINGS: More recently, the number of self-demand amputations appears to have raised. Some amputations of healthy legs have even been performed in hospital settings, raising important ethical issues. A new category of trouble has been described: the Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID)...

Among the usual indications of intraoperative ultrasounds, we describe four infrequent applications that show how useful and powerful this technique could be for interventive urologists. The first case regards a 66 years old male who was affected by a renal metastasis from thoracic cage chondrosarcoma. The use of intraoperative ultrasounds permits to highlight atypical sonographic features of the secondary lesion that were not seen in preoperative radiologic exams and that are completely different from the usual renal lesions...

In this paper the authors analyse transexualism from a psychopathological, nosographic and clinical point of view. The re-examine the theories on the subjects elaborated by a number of authors and describe the clinical characteristics of the syndrome, paying special attention to problems relating to differential diagnosis. Moreover, they present the results ofa study carried out in a personal series of cases. The sample studied included 11 male transsexual subjects. The latter were evaluated through psychiatric interview and a questionnaire aimed at obtaining information on the following topics: the subjects' social and affective relations; their childhood experience; their perception and acceptance of themselves; the meaning, characteristics, localisation and experience of sexual pleasure...

Eleven transexuals with transexuality from man to woman and a karotype 46 X-Y and 11 transexuals with transexuality from woman to man and the karotype 46 X-X were investigated for H-Y antigen. Eight of the 46 X-Y transexuals were H-Y antigen negative, one intermediately slightly positive and two H-Y antigen positive. Of the 46 X-X transexuals 9 were H-Y antigen positive, one was intermediately slightly positive and one was H-Y antigen negative. Two groups of transexuals can be distinguished. Genuine transexuals and secondary transexuals with a transvestite past who have suffered a sexual identity crisis due to the environment...
