International classification of sleep disorders

This classification groups the primary sleep disorders under two sub-groups: the dyssomnias, which include those disorders that produce a complaint of insomnia or excessive sleepiness, and the parasomnias, which include those disorders that intrude into or occur during sleep but do not produce a primary complaint of insomnia or excessive sleepiness. The dyssomnias are further subdivided, in part along pathophysiological lines, into the intrinsic (induced primarily by factors within the body), extrinsic (induced primarily by factors outside the body) and circadian rhythm sleep disorders. The primary sleep disorders (dyssomnias and parasomnias) are separated from the medical/psychiatric sleep disorder section to remain compatible with the medical ICD (International Classification of Diseases). Finally, there is a fourth section of the ICSD which includes sleep disorders that could not be sufficiently classified into one of the other categories, usually as a result of inadequate or insufficient information available to substantiate the unequivocal existence of the disorder.

The following is a short list of some important diagnoses with their ICSD code:


Dyssomnias

A. Intrinsic sleep disorders

Psychophysiological insomnia

307.42-0

Sleep state misperception

307.49-1

Idiopathic insomnia

780.52-7
