Transgender patients have many unique dermatologic needs, yet the literature concerning dermatologic care of transgender individuals is lacking.
We aimed to provide a systematic review of the literature on dermatology care in transgender individuals to provide a foundation for future research and education.
We systematically reviewed peer-reviewed published studies that examined dermatologic treatment of transgender patients.
A total of 110 articles met the inclusion criteria for systematic review.
