What is ICD? 

ICD stands for International Classification of Diseases. It is a global coding system that is used for epidemiology, health management, and clinical purposes, maintained by the WHO (World Health Organization). The codes given in the ICD are a system that classifies diseases on the basis of a variety of signs, symptoms, complaints, external causes, and social circumstances, and abnormal findings. 

Over the years, the ICD codes have been revised periodically and the 10th revision is known as ICD- 10 codes. Every disease that is diagnosed can be represented by one of the codes that are given in the ICD-10. It is given as a combination of numbers that describe different aspects of medical conditions.
