This new edition of WHO's International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10th Revision (ICD-10) has been fully updated. Originally published in the early 1990s ICD-10 now incorporates all updates and other changes to this core health classification since 1996 up to end 2003. In 2000 WHO formed an international panel to review and collate all adjustments to the ICD-10 proposed by many institutions around the world. Panel members consult several times a year and this definitive second edition of ICD-10 is the result of their work. The new edition has hundreds of updates and includes new diseases such as SARS to ensure that the classification is entirely suited to today's needs. Improvements have been made to the rules and guidelines for mortality coding making them easier to implement and which will result in the improved comparability of international mortality statistics. In addition there are many additions and changes to the alphabetical index resulting in some 60 additional pages making it far more comprehensive than that of the first edition.
