The Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare (SOS) makes own definition tables parallel to the process at the Nordic Casemix Centre (NCC) and the current problem was discovered during routine comparison between SWE2014CC-SOS-PR02 (SOS version) and SWE2014PR0F (NCC version) in the autumn 2013.

During the updating process for NordDRG 2014 we noticed that the diagnoses in the table below are on the exclusion list under 18C90 “Other severe infection”. The codes with 18C90 are truly severe infections and of course they must be able to complicate the diagnoses in the table below.

  • C799 Sekundär malign tumör (metastas), icke specificerad lokalisation
  • J011 Akut frontalsinuit
  • J101 Influensa med andra respiratoriska manifestationer, annat identifierat influensavirus


NPK, Sweden – 2014-01-29

The codes in the table above should be removed from the exclusion list under 18C90. The changes are also specified in Suggestion CPK ID 529.xls.
