Morphology Section of the ICD-10 MIT

In light of the discussions during the ICD-10 meetings held on the 8th August 2013, the Task Team decided to update the morphology codes on the ICD-10 Master Industry Table (MIT) to include all the different behaviour codes for the histological type neoplasms. According to the WHO Tabular List (Volume 1), the behaviour code should be changed if the other reported information makes it appropriate.

Please assist the Task Team with identifying the different morphology coding concerns to ensure that they take these concerns into consideration while doing the updates.

While they are in the process of updating coding, please also forward any other omissions, deletions or corrections to be made to the rest of the Master Industry Table to them. This updated MITwill be made available on a date to be communicated to the healthcare industry in due course.

Feedback is required as soon as possible, but not later than 20 September 2013. Please forward your replies via email to ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
