Section F3 (affective disorders) of ICD-10 has preserved a high degree of continuity with respect to ICD-9, and a strong convergence towards DSM-III-R affective disorders is evident. Despite this tendency, some categories, like F31, F33 and F36, need further specification. In general, section F3 was adequately accepted by clinicians, easy to use and proved to be user-friendly for a wide variety of psychiatrists with different orientation.
