To the Editor: In describing 8 years of experience in managing adolescent gender identity disorder (GID) at a paediatric hospital clinic, Hewitt and colleagues highlight a small group of patients who require momentous life-long clinical decisions made in a timely manner.1 However, the rarity of this condition means that experience in any centre is limited.
