Depression ICD 10 and F32
ICD-10 is the 10th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD), a medical classification list by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The code F32.0 refers to a specific type of depression called “major depressive episode” in ICD-10. This is a mental disorder characterized by persistent feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities, which can affect a person’s ability to function in their daily life. The diagnosis of major depressive episode requires that the symptoms have been present for at least two weeks. The specific code can change depending on the type of depression present and if it has any associated features such as melancholic or atypical features. It’s important to note that a proper diagnosis should be made by a qualified healthcare professional.
