139 Late effects of other infectious and parasitic diseases

          Note: This category is to be used to indicate conditions in categories
           001-009, 020-041, 046-136 as the cause of late effects, which are
           themselves classified elsewhere. The "late effects" include conditions
           specified as such; they also include sequela of diseases classifiable
           to the above categories if there is evidence that the disease itself
           is no longer present.

139.0 Late effects of viral encephalitis

          Late effects of conditions classifiable to 049.8, 049.9, 062-064

139.1 Late effects of trachoma

          Late effects of conditions classifiable to 076.-

139.8 Late effects of other and unspecified infectious and parasitic

           II. NEOPLASMS
          1. Content:
           This chapter contains the following broad groups:--
           140-195 Malignant neoplasms, stated or presumed to be primary, of
           specified sites, except of lymphatic and hematopoietic tissue
           196-198 Malignant neoplasms, stated or presumed to be secondary, of
           specified sites
           199 Malignant neoplasms without specification of site
           200-208 Malignant neoplasms, stated or presumed to be primary, of
           lymphatic and hematopoietic tissue
           210-229 Benign neoplasms
           230-234 Carcinoma in situ
           235-238 Neoplasms of uncertain behavior [see Note, page 140]
           239 Neoplasms of unspecified nature
          2. Functional activity
           All neoplasms are classified in this chapter, whether or not
           functionally active.
          3. Malignant neoplasms overlapping site boundaries
           Categories 140-195 are for the classification of primary malignant
           neoplasms according to their point of origin. A malignant neoplasm
           that overlaps two or more subcategories within a three-digit rubric
           and whose point of origin cannot be determined should be classified to
           the subcategory .8 "Other." For example: "carcinoma involving tip and
           ventral surface of tongue" should be assigned to 141.8. On the other
           hand, "carcinoma of tip of tongue extending to involve the ventral
           surface" should be coded to 141.2 as the point of origin, the tip, is
           known. Three subcategories (149.8, 159.8, 165.8) have been provided
           for malignant neoplasms that overlap the boundaries of three-digit
           rubrics within certain systems. Overlapping malignant neoplasms that
           cannot be classified as indicated above should be assigned to the
           appropriate subdivision of category 195 (Malignant neoplasm of other
           and ill-defined sites).
