ICD-10-AM is comprised of:

  • Tabular List of Diseases - contains core three character codes with some expansion to four and five character codes. The Morphology of neoplasms are specified in an appendix.
  • Alphabetic Index of Diseases - consists of three sections: Section I is the index of diseases, syndromes, pathological conditions, injuries, signs, symptoms, problems and other reasons for contact with health services.
