In our country the ICD-10(International classification of disease) is used to classify disease. But it has many problems in classifying and managing statistics in the field of dermatology. For instance, there are many diseases that are not included in the ICD-10, and the classification is not organized. Also, in many cases the classification of ICD-10 has problems in computerizing. Even though we need a classification overcoming these problems, National health insurance corporation is using the ICD-10. In this study, we corrected the problems of the ICD-10 to make an improved ICD-10 to use in dermatologic fields. To do this, we had to search all the dermatologic disease code contained in the ICD-10, and find all the disease listed in the book of domestic and foreign. We had to compare and analyse these. Subsequently, we add the diseases that are not contained in the ICD-10, organized the classification and improved the dermatologic disease code of ICD-10. This classification would be useful for the management of disease in the dermatologic field.
