Disease classification may be defined as a category system to which morbid entities are allocated according to the criteria established. The purpose of the ICD is to allow the systematic analysis, interpretation and comparison of data collected at different times on mortality and morbidity.
ICD, supported by the WHO(World Health Organization), is translated into a multitude of languages and is the main source of diagnostic definition. .
