Notes on ICD-11 Beta drafting platform and DSM-5 draft by Suzy Chapman for Dx Revision Watch:

These notes may be reposted, if reposted in full, source credited, link provided, and date of publication included.

January 6, 2013

1] The publicly viewable version of the ICD-11 Beta drafting platform can be accessed here:
Foundation view: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/f/en
Linearization view: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/l-m/en

2] The various ICD-11 Revision Topic Advisory Groups are developing the Beta draft on a separate, more complex platform accessible only to ICD-11 Revision.

3] The ICD-11 Beta draft is a work in progress and not scheduled for completion until 2015/16. When viewing the public version of the Beta draft please note the ICD-11 Revision Caveats. Note also that not all proposals may be retained following analysis of the field trials for ICD-11 and ICD-11-PCH, the abridged Primary Care version of ICD-11:
http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/Help/Get/caveat/en

4] The Bodily Distress Disorders section of the ICD-11 Beta draft Chapter 5 can be found here:
http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/f/en#/http%3a%2f%2fwho.int%2ficd%23F45
http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/l-m/en#/http%3a%2f%2fwho.int%2ficd%23F45

According to the public version of the ICD-11 Beta drafting platform, the existing ICD-10 Somatoform Disorders are currently proposed to be replaced with Bodily Distress Disorders, and Psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere, not with Bodily distress syndrome as Dr Garralda has in her slide presentation.

The following proposed ICD-11 categories are listed as child categories under parent, Bodily Distress Disorders, and Psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere:

EC5 Mild bodily distress disorder
EC6 Moderate bodily distress disorder
EC7 Severe bodily distress disorder
EC8 Psychological and behavioural factors associated with disorders or diseases classified elsewhere

There are no Definitions nor any other descriptors populated for the proposed, new ICD categories EC5 thru EC7.

EC8 is a legacy category from ICD-10 and has some populated content imported from ICD-10.

+++
These earlier ICD-11 Beta draft Somatoform Disorders categories appear proposed to be eliminated and replaced with the four new categories EC5 thru EC8, listed above:

Somatization disorder [F45.0 in ICD-10]
Undifferentiated somatoform disorder [F45.1 in ICD-10]
Somatoform autonomic dysfunction [F45.3 in ICD-10]
Persistent somatoform pain disorder [F45.4 in ICD-10]
    > Persistent somatoform pain disorder
    > Chronic pain disorder with somatic and psychological factors [Not in ICD-10]
Other somatoform disorders [F45.8 in ICD-10]
Somatoform disorder, unspecified [F45.9 in ICD-10]

5] The existing ICD-10 Chapter V category Neurasthenia [ICD-10: F48.0] is no longer accounted for in the public version of the ICD-11 Beta draft. I have previously reported that for ICD-11-PHC, the Primary Care version of ICD-11, the proposal is to eliminate the term Neurasthenia.

(I cannot confirm whether the currently omission of Neurasthenia from the Beta draft is due to oversight or because ICD-11 Revision’s intention is that Neurasthenia is also eliminated from the main ICD-11 classification.)

+++
6] I have previously reported that for ICD-11-PHC, the abridged, Primary Care version of ICD-11, the proposal, last year, was for a disorder section called Bodily distress disorders, under which would sit Bodily stress syndrome [sic].

This category is proposed for ICD-11 Primary Care version to include “milder somatic symptom disorders” as well as “DSM-5’s Complex somatic symptom disorder” and would replace “medically unexplained somatic symptoms.”

7] Dr Garralda lists Complex Somatic symptom disorder (DSM-V) on Slide 11 of her presentation.

The manual texts for the next edition of DSM are in the process of being finalized for a projected release date of May 2013. The next edition of DSM will be published under the title DSM-5 not DSM-V . The intention is that once published, updates and revisions to DSM-5 will be styled: DSM-5.1, DSM-5.2 etc.

When the third draft of DSM-5 was released in May 2012, the proposal was to merge Complex Somatic Symptom Disorder with Simple Somatic Symptom Disorder and to call this hybrid category Somatic Symptom Disorder.

This would mean that this new disorder has the same name as the overall disorder section it sits under, which replaces DSM-IV’s Somatoform Disorders.

As any subsequent changes to draft criteria sets following closure of the third stakeholder review are embargoed, I cannot confirm whether the SSD Work Group has decided to rename this category to Somatic symptom Disorder or retain the original term, Complex Somatic Symptom Disorder, the term used by Dr Garralda in her presentation.

+++
8] Turning from ICD-11 Beta draft Chapter 5 Mental and behavioural disorders to Chapter 6 Diseases of the nervous system:

As previously reported, Chronic fatigue syndrome is listed under Diseases of the nervous system in the Foundation View. There is no listing for Chronic fatigue syndrome in the Linearization View nor is the term listed in the PDF for Chapter 6, that is available to those who are registered with ICD-11 Beta draft for access to additional content:

http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/f/en#http%3a%2f%2fwho.int%2ficd%23G93.3

Documentation from the ICD-11 iCAT Alpha draft dating from May 2010, implies that the intention for ICD-11 is a change of hierarchy for the existing ICD-10 Title term Postviral fatigue syndrome.

In the ICD-11 Beta draft, Chronic fatigue syndrome (which was listed only within the Index volume of ICD-10 and not listed in Volume 2: The Tabular List) appears to be elevated to ICD Title term status, with potentially up to 12 descriptive parameters yet to be completed and populated in accordance with the ICD-11 “Content Model”.

But the current proposed hierarchical relationship between PVFS and CFS for ICD-11 remains unconfirmed.

See image for documentation from the iCAT Alpha drafting platform, from May 2010:

https://dxrevisionwatch.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/change-history-gj92-cfs.png

There is no discrete ICD Title term displaying for Postviral fatigue syndrome in either the ICD-11 Beta Foundation View or Linearization View.

Neither is there any discrete ICD Title term displaying for Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis in either the Foundation View or Linearization View.

Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis appears at the top of a list of terms under “Synonyms” in the CFS description. [The hover text over the asterisk at the end of “Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis” reads, “This term is an inclusion term in the linearizations.”]

Postviral fatigue syndrome is also listed under “Synonyms” along with a number of other terms imported from other classification systems.

Included in this list under “Synonyms” are “chronic fatigue syndrome nos” and “chronic fatigue, unspecified,” both of which appear to have been sourced from the as yet to be implemented, US specific, ICD-10-CM.

+++
At some recent, unspecified date, a Definition has been inserted for ICD-11 Title term Chronic fatigue syndrome into the previously empty Definition field. An earlier Definition was removed when the Alpha draft was replaced with the Beta draft but can be seen in this screenshot, here, from June 2010:

https://dxrevisionwatch.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/2icatgj92cfsdef.png

The current Definition reads (and be mindful of the ICD-11 Caveats):

“Chronic fatigue syndrome is characterized by extreme chronic fatigue of an indeterminate cause, which is disabling andt [sic] does not improve with rest and that is exacerbated by physical or mental activity.”

There are no Definition fields for Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis or Postviral fatigue syndrome as these terms are listed under “Synonyms” to ICD-11 Title term, Chronic fatigue syndrome.

+++
Since one needs to be mindful of the ICD-11 Caveats and as the Chair of Topic Advisory Group for Neurology has failed to respond to a request for clarification of the intention for these three terms and the proposed ICD relationships between them, I am not prepared to draw any conclusions from what can currently be seen in the Beta drafting platform.

I shall continue to monitor the Beta draft and report on any significant changes.

For definitions of “Synonyms,” “Inclusions,” “Exclusions” and other ICD-11 terminology see the iCAT Glossary:

Extract, Summary document

Chronic fatigue syndrome

Andreas Kogelnik, MD, representing the Coalition 4 ME/CFS, was available via telephone to address questions and clinical concerns.

Lori Chapo-Kroger, representing the Coalition 4 ME/CFS, expressed that many nations, and the World Health Organization, put CFS at G93 in ICD-10, and that this would include everyone but the U.S.

Mary Dimmock, representing the Coalition 4 ME/CFS, questioned why the change must wait until after 2014 when they feel that this is an error in the classification right now (and has been since 2001).

Dr. Kogelnik indicated that the term myalgic encephalomyelitis is used in Europe while the U.S. continues to use the term chronic fatigue syndrome, and that the Coalition 4 ME/CFS considers these two conditions (CFS and ME) to be the same. That is why they want both terms included in the same code.

Nelly Leon-Chisen, AHA, noted support for a need for a code for chronic fatigue syndrome distinct from chronic fatigue, unspecified. She indicated also that with the cause being unknown it is better that the classification not be locked into placing CFS as a viral code. Also, if there is no consensus for ME and CFS being the same then it makes sense to keep them as two separate codes. If research later develops that says they are the same then the data can be aggregated together. However, if the research does not show this, then you don’t have them lumped into one code that does not allow you to separate out one from the other.

Sue Bowman, AHIMA, questioned counting all CFS as following a virus infection. She expressed a need for clinical consensus on this condition. Also, she stated that she did not see a rationale for an early change (before 2014).

Coding of CFS in the forthcoming US specific ICD-10-CM

At the ICD-9-CM Coordination and Maintenance Committee’s September 14, 2011 meeting, a presentation had been made on behalf of the Coalition 4 ME/CFS in relation to the formal submission of a proposal.

The proposal requested that consideration be given to moving the classification of Chronic fatigue syndrome from its current proposed location within the ICD-10-CM R code chapter (Chapter 18: Symptoms and signs) to the G code chapter (Chapter 6: Diseases of the nervous system).

This would bring the chapter location of Chronic fatigue syndrome in ICD-10-CM in line with the international version of ICD-10, the Canadian ICD-10-CA and proposals for the forthcoming ICD-11.

No NCHS decision reached in response to the September 2011 proposals and the public comments received in respect of these proposals was conveyed following closure of the public comment period, last November.

However, further discussion of Chronic fatigue syndrome and two additional proposals are tabled on the agenda for discussion at the September 19, meeting, tomorrow.

I am appending the relevant extract from the Diagnosis Agenda and Proposals document which was published on the CDC  website overnight. An official audio and a Summary of the meeting should be available in due course on the CDC website. I will update with these when available.

Chronic fatigue syndrome

Andreas Kogelnik, M.D., Coalition 4 ME/CFS

Chronic fatigue syndrome

A proposal, submitted by the Coalition 4 ME/CFS, to modify codes for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) was presented and discussed at the September 2011 ICD Coordination and Maintenance Committee meeting. The National Center for Health Statistics also presented an alternative proposal, Option 2. There were many comments from the audience, and there was general support for the NCHS-proposed Option 2, moving CFS from Chapter 18, Symptoms, signs and abnormal clinical findings, not elsewhere classified, to Chapter 6, Diseases of the Nervous System but retaining separate codes for CFS and myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). The rationale for retaining separate codes included agreement on the importance of being able to extract data on the two conditions separately or combine, as needed. It was also noted that term ME is not seen in medical record documentation. Written comments received on this issue were inconclusive. There was not agreement that the two conditions are the same. While some comments were from private citizens, others were from advocacy organizations and associations that represent health care providers and other large constituencies that use the classification. The public comment period following the meeting is not meant as a poll or survey. Analysis of public comment focused on the substance of the comments; whether there was a clear scientific consensus regarding the etiology and manifestations of the condition; and an understanding of the classification, its structure and conventions, and its uses by the health care industry.

As noted in the information from the September 2011 presentation, the cause or causes of CFS remain unknown, despite a vigorous search. While a single cause for CFS may yet be identified, another possibility is that CFS represents a spectrum of illnesses resulting from multiple possible pathways. Conditions that have been proposed to trigger the development of CFS include infections, trauma, immune dysfunction, stress, and exposure to toxins. Research in this area is ongoing.

There are several case definitions currently in use, some separating CFS from ME, and others merging the two conditions. The most widely used are the 1994 case definition (http://www.cdc.gov/cfs/case-definition/index.html ), the Canadian and the Oxford definitions. A new case definition for ME was published in the 2011 international consensus criteria that emphasized recent research and clinical experience that strongly point to widespread inflammation and multisystem symptoms and neuropathology. This new definition, which considers ME and CFS as synonymous terms, however, has not been widely vetted by the health care community at large. While there is no consensus on one case definition, there is consensus that this is a serious and complex syndrome, and it is likely that there are multiple subgroups. It has been noted that some providers use the terms interchangeably while others consider one condition a subgroup of the other. There is also some overlap with fibromyalgia and CFS/ME could be considered one of the multiple chronic overlapping pain conditions.

The Coalition 4 ME/CFS has stated that they do not support Option 2 proposed in September 2011 and have submitted a revised proposal. A revised Option 2 is also being proposed, consistent with comments received supporting Option 2 as noted above. The Coalition is also requesting that their proposal be considered for implementation prior to October 1, 2014 even though the condition is not a new disease and therefore does not meet the criteria for implementation during the partial freeze.

Based on the above, the following proposals for consideration are:

+++
For comparison, the proposal that had been presented by CDC at the September 2011 meeting in counterpoint to an earlier proposal presented by the Coalition 4 ME/CFS at that same meeting was this:

 

 

Instead of Title term G93.3 Postviral and other chronic fatigue syndromes (CDC Option 2, September 2011)

CDC suggests retaining the Title term G93.3 Postviral fatigue syndrome (CDC Option 2, September 2012).

+++
Instead of Child category G93.31 Postviral fatigue syndrome, Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis

CDC is now suggesting two categories for Postviral fatigue syndrome, thus:

G93.30 Postviral fatigue syndrome, unspecified, Postviral fatigue syndrome NOS (not otherwise specified)

with a discrete Child category G93.31 Myalgic encephalomyelitis, Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis.

+++
No suggested change to the September 2011 CDC Option 2 suggestion for Child categories:

G93.32 Chronic fatigue syndrome, Chronic fatigue syndrome NOS.

This would bring chapter location and parent class coding of Chronic fatigue syndrome in line with the international version of ICD-10, published in 1990, the Canadian ICD-10-CA and proposals for the forthcoming ICD-11.

No decision in response to the proposal, meeting discussions and public comment received has been conveyed following closure of the public comment period. Further discussion of Chronic fatigue syndrome has been tabled on the tentative agenda for the September 19, 2012 meeting.

I will post Summary documents and other relevant meeting materials as these become available. There are three posts on Dx Revision Watch that relate to and report on the presentation at the September 14, 2011 meeting:

Post #193 Shortlink: http://wp.me/pKrrB-2mC

The information in this report relates to proposals for the World Health Organization’s forthcoming ICD-11, currently scheduled for pilot dissemination in 2015+; it does not apply to the existing ICD-10 or to the forthcoming US specific “clinical modification” of ICD-10, known as ICD-10-CM.

Caveat: The ICD-11 Beta drafting process is a work in progress over the next two to three years. The Beta draft is updated on a daily basis. Parent terms, category terms and sorting codes assigned to categories are subject to change as chapter reorganization progresses. Images and text in this posting may not reflect the most recently assigned categories and codes. This post reflects the Beta draft as it stood at July 25, 2012. Please also read the ICD-11 Beta Draft Caveats.

Post #190 Changes to ICD-11 Beta drafting platform: Bodily Distress Disorders (1) reported on proposals for including three Bodily distress disorder categories in the Somatoform Disorders section of the ICD-11 Beta drafting platform which appear potentially to replace or subsume a number of existing ICD-10 Somatoform Disorder categories.

That post has been revised to reflect clarifications from Professor, Sir David Goldberg, M.D., around the Primary care version of ICD-11 and to include additional material.

The report in this post updates on current proposals for the ICD-11 Beta drafting platform for revision of the following ICD-10 categories: Neurasthenia, Postviral fatigue syndrome (PVFS), Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), Fibromyalgia (FM) and Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) for the full version of ICD-11.

ICD Revision Steering Group and the various Topic Advisory Groups are developing the ICD-11 Beta draft on a non public access collaborative authoring platform where change histories can be tracked, which looks similar to this:

The publicly viewable version of the Beta drafting platform looks like this:

and displays less information. It can be accessed here:

Neurasthenia:

Neurasthenia is not classified in DSM-IV and is not proposed to be classified in DSM-5.

In ICD-10, Neurasthenia is classified in Chapter V Mental and behavioural disorders under parents:

F40-F48 Neurotic, stress-related and somatoform disorders

    F48 Other neurotic disorders
        ›  F48.0 Neurasthenia

+++
For ICD-11 Beta, up until July 3, Neurasthenia was also classified under:

Neurotic, stress-related and somatoform disorders

    9S1 Other neurotic disorders
        ›  9S1.1 Neurasthenia

Inclusions: Fatigue syndrome

Exclusions: psychasthenia
postviral fatigue syndrome
malaise and fatigue
asthenia NOS
burn-out

    9S1.2 Other specified neurotic disorders

Inclusions: Dhat syndrome
Occupational neurosis, including writer’s cramp
Psychasthenia
Psychasthenic neurosis
Psychogenic syncope

     9S1.3 Neurotic disorder, unspecified

Neurosis NOS

+++

On July 4, all child categories classified under parent class, 9S1 Other neurotic disorders, including Neurasthenia and its Inclusion, Fatigue syndrome, were removed from both the FC and LM view and from the PDF for the Chapter 5 Print version and there is currently no listing for any of these categories and child categories under any parent.

As no “Change history” records display in the public version of the Beta draft, it cannot be determined from what information is available whether these categories are temporarily omitted while this section of Chapter 5 is being reorganized, or whether all or selected of these ICD-10 categories are proposed to be retired for ICD-11 or are destined to be subsumed under the proposed Bodily distress disorders categories that ICD Revision has yet to define.

According to the Goldberg February 2011 report, terms included in the ICD11-PHC version of ICD-11 must have an equivalent disorder in the main classification. In February 2011, it was proposed not to include Neurasthenia in the ICD11-PHC version but to subsume under 13 Distress disorder. (It isn’t clear under which disorder group or subcategory Neurasthenia is proposed to be subsumed for the most recently published iteration for ICD11-PHC.)

Neurasthenia remains listed as an Exclusion to Chapter 5 Generalized anxiety disorder and Chapter 18 Malaise and fatigue but these Exclusions may be awaiting attention, if the intention is to retire a number of ICD-10 terms.

I will update when it becomes apparent what the intention is for these currently missing categories.

ICD-11 Chapter 06: Diseases of the nervous system

Postviral fatigue syndrome, Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis, Chronic fatigue syndrome:

In ICD-10, Postviral fatigue syndrome is classified as a Title term within Volume 1: The Tabular List in Chapter VI: Diseases of the nervous system under G00-G99 Other disorders of the nervous system > G93 Other disorders of brain, and coded at G93.3. See: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd10/browse/2010/en#/G93.3

Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis is also coded in the Tabular List to G93.3 Postviral fatigue syndrome.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is not classified within the Tabular List but is indexed to G93.3 in Volume 3: The Alphabetical Index.

An unauthorised copy of Volume 3: The Alphabetical Index Version for 2006 can be accessed here: (See Page 528)
http://www.scribd.com/doc/7350978/ICD10-2006-Alphabetical-Index-Volume-3 

In indexing Chronic fatigue syndrome to G93.3, ICD-10 does not specify whether it views the term as a synonym, subclass or “best coding guess” to Title term, Postviral fatigue syndrome or to Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis.

Nor does ICD-10 specify the relationship between Postviral fatigue syndrome and Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis.

(For ICD-11, a mechanism will be provided to identify whether an inclusion term is a synonym or a subclass.)

In June 2010, I reported that in May 2010, a change of hierarchy had been recorded in the ICD-11 iCAT Alpha drafting platform “Change History” and “Category Discussion Notes” for class: G93.3 Postviral fatigue syndrome.

See these two screenshots from the original iCAT Alpha drafting platform:

From current information in the Beta draft, it would appear that for ICD-11, the proposal is for a change of hierarchy between Postviral fatigue syndrome and Chronic fatigue syndrome with Chronic fatigue syndrome elevated to an ICD-11 Title term, with a Definition (not currently populated) and with potentially up to 12 other descriptive parameters, populated in accordance with the ICD-11 “Content Model.”

There are a number of terms listed under Synonyms to Title term Chronic fatigue syndrome including Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis and Postviral fatigue syndrome.

Mouse hover over the asterisk at the end of Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis and the following hover text displays, “This term is an inclusion term in the linearizations.”

Also listed under “Synonyms” are “chronic fatigue syndrome nos” and “chronic fatigue, unspecified” (both imported from current proposals for locating Chronic fatigue syndrome in Chapter 18: Symptoms and Signs in the forthcoming US specific, ICD-10-CM).

See this Beta drafting platform page:

http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/f/en#/http%3a%2f%2fwho.int%2ficd%23G93

 

There is currently no discrete ICD Title term listed for Postviral fatigue syndrome in either the Foundation Component or Linearization Morbidity view and no discrete ICD Title term for Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis.

It remains unconfirmed, but from the Beta draft as it currently stands, it suggests that for ICD-11:

  • Chronic fatigue syndrome is proposed to become the Chapter 06 Title term
  • Benign myalgic encephalomyelitis is specified as an Inclusion term to CFS under “Synonyms”
  • Postviral fatigue syndrome and a number of other terms are listed under “Synonyms” to CFS

Fibromyalgia (FM):

In ICD-10, Fibromyalgia is classified under:

Chapter XIII: Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue > M79 Other soft tissue disorders > M79 Other soft tissue disorders, not elsewhere classified > M79.7 Fibromyalgia 

ICD-10 Version: 2010: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd10/browse/2010/en#/M79.7

For ICD-11 Beta draft, Fibromyalgia is currently classified under:

Chapter 13: Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue > Soft tissue disorders > Other soft tissue disorders > QG6 Other soft tissue disorders, not elsewhere classified > QG6.7 Fibromyalgia

FC: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/f/en#/http%3a%2f%2fwho.int%2ficd%23M79.7
LM: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/l-m/en#/http%3a%2f%2fwho.int%2ficd%23M79.7

+++
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS):

In ICD-10, Irritable bowel syndrome is classified under:

Chapter XI: Diseases of the digestive system > K55-K63 Other diseases of intestines > K58.0 Irritable bowel syndrome with diarrhoea > K58.9 Irritable bowel syndrome without diarrhoea > Irritable bowel syndrome NOS

ICD-10 Version: 2010: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd10/browse/2010/en#/K58

For ICD-11 Beta draft, Irritable bowel syndrome is currently classified under:

Chapter 11: Diseases of the digestive system > Functional gastrointestinal disorders > FS6 Irritable bowel syndrome and other functional bowel disorders > FS6.1 Irritable bowel syndrome 

FC: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/f/en#/http%3a%2f%2fwho.int%2ficd%23K58
LM: http://apps.who.int/classifications/icd11/browse/l-m/en#/http%3a%2f%2fwho.int%2ficd%23K58

I shall continue to monitor the Beta drafting process and update on any significant developments for both ICD-11 Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 and for ICD11-PHC for the categories that are the focus of this post and post #190.
