International classification of disease

The classification of specific conditions and groups of conditions determined by an internationally representative expert committee that advises the world health organization, which publishes the complete list in a periodically revised book, the manual of the international Statistical classification of diseases, injuries and causes of death. The Tenth revision (icd) came into use in 1992; it has 20 chapters, each with a hierarchical arrangement of subdivisions (rubrics); some chapters are aetiological, more relate to body systems, some to classes of conditions, some to procedures.
