Reviewing the ICD-10 classification of haematological neoplasms on its way to ICD-11

Ulrich Vogel, Robert Jakob, Michael Schopen, Harald Stein, Stefan Krause

Abstract: Reviewing the ICD-10 classification of haematological neoplasms on its way to ICD-11

Under the leadership of the German WHO-FIC Collaborating Centre the section for the haematological neoplasms was reviewed. This paper will explain methods and results.

At the last WHO-FIC Network meeting in Reykjavik areas that need to be reviewed more systematically on the way to ICD-11 have been identified.

A two-step approach for the haematological neoplasm was recommended: the way towards a restructured leukemia and lymphoma section in ICD-11 should be paved by a moderate update of ICD-10 in order to bring this section in line with ICD-O-3 and the current state of science and to achieve a smoother transition to ICD-11 without major breaks in health statistics.

Due to great discrepancies between classifications in use and the current state of science clinicians and pathologists seek for updating ICD-10 in accordance with the Update Reference Committee (URC) and the WHO-FIC Network as soon as possible.
