Hi again Steve,

Just a quick follow-up to my last message.  Not sure if you are also interested in the ICD10CM ontology, which is included in BioPortal:

… and was updated as recently as 2015 in the UMLS:

Hello Steve,

Twice per year we do a bulk import of terminologies distributed by the UMLS [1].  (They have a twice per year release schedule, e.g., for this year it will be 2017AA and 2017AB).  ICD-10 is one of the terminologies contained in the UMLS distribution.  So, the version numbers for ICD-10 that you see in BioPortal correspond to UMLS releases, e.g., 2016AA, 2016AB, etc.  In order to determine what version of ICD-10 is contained in a particular UMLS release, you would need to refer to the National Library of Medicine’s documentation.  This page on their website:

… has an alphabetical list of all the terminologies contained in the UMLS.  If you look at ICD-10 on this page, it appears it was last updated in the 2004AB release.

I’m not sure why it hasn’t been updated in the UMLS distribution since 2004.  For more information on that, it would probably be best to post a message on their support list (

Kind regards,

Dear BioPortal:

How can we determine the source version of one of the ontologies? For example, 'ICD-10' has had a new version for almost every calendar year since about 2003:
When looking further into 'ICD-10' on your site, I see the table of 'Release Date' and 'Upload Date', but those do not appear to correspond to when the source ICD-10 was actually released (by year).

Thank you for any help you can provide on this.
