In the last decades, with the breakdown of preexisting sociocultural paradigms and concepts, and with the maturation of society, gender identity is no longer seen in the binary form of masculine and feminine, but within a spectrum. The objective of this study is to determine the medical-expert technical criteria for judicial proceedings in cases of gender dysphoria, transsexualism and transvestitism. A non-systematic search was conducted in the Medline, Pubmed and Lilacs databases from 2000 to 2016, and a review of Legal Medicine books and current Brazilian legislation related to the subject.
