Notice to Readers Revision of HIV Classification Codes

CDC has updated the International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) codes for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection for use with United States morbidity and mortality data. The revised coding scheme is effective January 1, 1988.

The codes appear in the MMWR supplement dated December 25, 1987, and entitled "Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Infection Codes, Official Authorized Addendum, ICD-9-CM (Revision No. 1)."
