Description:1994 revised classification system for human immunodeficiency virus infection in children less than 13 years of age /
1994 revised classification system for human immunodeficiency virus infection in children less than 13 years of age: This revised classification system for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in children replaces the pediatric HIV classification system published in 1987. This revision was prompted by additional knowledge about the progression of HIV disease among children. In the new system, infected children are classified into mutually exclusive categories according to three parameters: a) infection status, b) clinical status, and c) immunologic status. The revised classification system reflects the stage of the child’s disease, establishes mutually exclusive classification categories, and balances simplicity and medical accuracy in the classification process. This document also describes revised pediatric definitions for two acquired immunodeficiency syndrome-defining conditions.
Official authorized addenda, human immunodeficiency virus infection codes and official guidelines for coding and reporting ICD-9-CM: This document contains changes to the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) codes for HIV infection and disease and includes guidelines for coding and reporting these conditions. The ICD-9-CM is the diagnosis classification system used for morbidity coding in U.S. health-care facilities. The simplification of the classification structure and the addition of guidelines should facilitate greater coding accuracy.
