I want to highlight and contributes the challenges of clinical laboratory tests specially “Hematological parameters in transgender persons“. The transgender’s main challenges in pathology and clinical laboratory practices which becomes more complex, if not taking seriously at the moment. These challenges include, inflexibility of electronic medical records in documenting affirmed gender, unfamiliarity among medical and laboratory professional with the needs of and terminology related to the transgender population, lack of reference ranges for laboratory tests, unclear guidelines regarding gender classification for blood donation eligibility criteria, and paucity of experience in handling and interpreting surgical and cytologic specimens from gender-transitioning individuals etc. In addition, social , systemic and physiological barriers hinders proper medical care to transgender, no room availability based on genders as in systemic point of view male and female rooms.
