New: Online ICD-10 Version for 2010

The information in this report refers only to the existing international WHO ICD-10 and not to the forthcoming ICD-11 or to any country specific, clinical modification of ICD-10.

New: Online ICD-10 Version for 2010

I reported some months ago that according to documentation from WHO-FIC meeting materials, it was understood that a version of ICD-10 for 2010 was planned to be published online by WHO, Geneva, earlier this year.

This would replace the ICD-10 online version for 2007 and incorporate all the annual updates to ICD-10 from 2007 to 2010.

This is now up online.

A searchable version of ICD-10 for 2010 is available at this URL:

International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10th Revision

It is presented on a platform similar to the platform being used for the ICD-11 Alpha Draft, that is, a list of ICD-10 Chapters on the left side of the screen, arranged with hierarchical parent > child categories, with the category codings set out on the right side of the screen.

This is the URL for ICD Title term G93.3 Postviral fatigue syndrome:

If “Chronic fatigue syndrome” is entered into the Search box, a drop down reads:

“Syndrome – fatigue – chronic – G93.3″

(Which is the way it is set out in Volume 3 The Alphabetical Index.)

Mouse hover over the orange square on the left of the dark blue drop down and the “Alt text” reads:

“Found in Index”

There is a User Guide for ICD-10 Version: 2010 but the platform is not difficult to navigate, just select a chapter and click on the little grey arrows to display parent class and Title term categories and their child categories – you can’t break anything:

Those of us with websites that have URLs pointing to specific ICD-10 version for 2007 categories will need to adjust URLs for the new platform, as code specific URLs are pointing only to the ICD-10 Version: 2010 opening page, for example:

what displayed in ICD-10 version for 2007 at this path:

would need updating to:

and the Chapter V entry for the F40-48 categories:

would need updating to:


to point to F45 Somatoform Disorders


to point to F48.0 Neurasthenia.
