How many different diseases are there?

hi guys,
the WHO distinguish 12,420 disease categories in ICD-10 (2007). note this includes injuries such as knee dislocation, but not external causes of morbidity and mortality (car crash)
(see their 'FAQ on ICD' page- )
hope you got the same number from counting 'em
