    • Description:
      Version 1.3 – Revised August 12th, 2013

      This guide provides a list of the International Classification of Disease (ICD) version 10 (ICD-10) and the ICD version 9 Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) codes for poisoning and pain. This list can be used to query databases featuring either morbidity (ICD-9-CM) or mortality (ICD-10) data.

      This information is organized by type of poison and intent. For ICD-10, both underlying and contributing cause of death codes are given. For ICD-9-CM, both the diagnosis and external (E) cause of injury codes are provided. For value labels or definitions of each code, please download the complete matrices from the National Center for Health Statistics at

      Note that the Safe States Alliance’s Report, “Consensus Recommendations for National and State Poisoning Surveillance,”1 includes poisoning definitions broader than those used in the traditional ICD system, including codes for conditions commonly associated with chronic drug abuse. The ICD-9-CM and ICD-10 codes that correspond to those broader definitions can be found in the appendices of that report.

      Please note that the ICD-9-CM codes for conditions causing pain included here were selected by the CDC Injury Center for research with insurance claims information. The codes have not been validated in any way. They should not be considered a recommendation for or a standard definition of conditions causing pain. NCIPC offers them for use by others with that understanding.
