This is a discrepancy between norwegian and national version and common NordDRG.
DG: J370 Chronic laryngitis
Common version NordDRG 2013: 03M08 Other ear, nose, mouth and throat diagnoses
NordDRG Norwegian 2013: 03M05 Otitis media and upper respiratory infection
Norway prefers no change to the property.
This should be decided commonly in the expert group. The dg-categories should be same in all versions and this breaks the rule. This will possibly be impossible in the future.
The question is unclear, the origin of the property is probably from the US-system but the point is that chronic laryngitis is not really just an infection.
