In Reply.  —Dr Lawrence and colleagues properly view the recent Council on Scientific Affairs report on health care for gay men and lesbians as a work in progress. The health care needs of transgendered patients would be appropriate for consideration by the Council in a future report. Quality research on transgendered persons is lacking. We strongly encourage further research on the relation of health care needs and all sexual orientations.
