The study investigated the relation between psychosocial factors and the etiology of Iranian transsexualists in a retrospective design. Records of 68 patients, between the years 1989 to 1995 who had been visited in one clinic were studied (11 records were not analyzed, because of the lack of required information, lack of diagnostic criteria and concomitant other mental disorders). Results showed that the chief referral source was psychiatrists, males were twice as frequent as females, the patients were gaed between 20 to 30 years old. Most of the patients didn't seek treatment, instead sought legal consent to change their gender. Although, we cannot point to a certain psychosocial factor but in all cases, there were a disruption in inter – personal relationships and in their family relations.
