One clarification on the answer number 2. The tree endpoint will give you an expanded tree for the term “Asthma”. If you are simply looking for the descendants, the call below would be more apt:<>

Hi Sina,

I am not sure which one of the two interpretations you are asking about:

1. Determine whether a term with a given id is located within a specific subtree. If that’s the case, yes, you should be able to do this. Here is an example that searches for the term "Uncomplicated moderate persistent asthma”, id = in a subtree of the term “Asthma”, id =<>


2. Get ALL the descendants (direct/indirect) of a given term (“Asthma”). In this case, the call would be:<>

Let me know if this helps.

Thank you for keeping in touch with us!

Would it be possible to use Restful services to search by id under a given subtree (like SNOMED Asthma) for all direct and indirect children?
