|Disorders usually first diagnosed in
infancy, childhood, or adolescence.
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition, Text Revision, also known
as DSM-IV-TR is a manual published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and includes all
currently recognized mental health disorders. The coding system utilized by the DSM-IV is designed
to correspond with codes from the International Classification of Diseases, commonly referred to as
the ICD. Since early versions of the DSM did not correspond with ICD codes and updates of the
publications for the ICD and the DSM are not simultaneous, some distinctions in the coding systems
may still be present. For this reason, it is recommended that users of these manuals consult the
appropriate reference when accessing diagnostic codes.
