Abstract

An attempt was made to describe and interpret a case of a 35-year-old male submitted to group psychotherapy of psychodynamic orientation. Hypotheses deal with the patient's change of sex, as well as with the time and way of disclosing this fact in the course of treatment. Hypotheses posed are verified by the reported data.
