The ICD blocks (German: "Gruppen") constitute a level in the hierarchy between the chapters and the three-digit categories. Sequential codes are grouped to form 240 groups that represent similar aetiological diagnoses. Unlike other grouper systems, the ICD blocks do not consider similar diagnoses from different chapters of the ICD classification, for example chronic pain as a unspecific symptom (R52.1) and as a somatoform disorder (F45.4).
