This discussion covers other conditions and
problems that may be a focus of clinical attention or that may otherwise
affect the diagnosis, course, prognosis, or treatment of a patient’s
mental disorder. These conditions are presented with their corresponding
codes from ICD-9-CM (usually V codes) and ICD-10-CM (usually Z codes).
A condition or problem in this chapter may be coded if it is a reason
for the current visit or helps to explain the need for a test, procedure,
or treatment. Conditions and problems in this chapter may also be
included in the medical record as useful information on circumstances
that may affect the patient’s care, regardless of their relevance
to the current visit.
