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-
http://www.who.int/classifications/h.../en/index.html )
hope you got the same number from counting 'em
