While testing the grouper and viewing the names, I have noticed that there are no cases in DRG 301 Endocrine disorders w/o cc
and for some reason the name is the same in DRG 301F Endocrine disorders w/o cc.

This is an obvious error that should be corrected as soon as possible although the practical significance is ver small.
The DRG 301 has been devided to subgroups in the NordDRG FIN. When the special rules for follow-up of malignancies was added (see Case #263) the subgroups of DRG 301 in the NordDRG FIN (for endocrine diseases) was missed. Therefore DRG 301 was included as a postMDC rule also in NordDRG FIN.
There have however never been any cases in DRG 301 in the Finnish hospital data based on this rule.
Thus the the current rule 423D062100 in the NordDRG FIN will be modified to DRG 301F (instead of DRG 301X). The DRG 301 will then diappear from the NordDRG FIN.
