Two years later, Mr. Arafat became the first elected president of the Palestinian Authority, the closest he would come to fulfilling his dream of presiding over an independent Palestinian state. Still, he remained convinced there would be a Palestinian state with or without him."We want achievement of the peace of courageous people to end this long suffering in order to build an independent nation having a lot of democracy and caring for its children and where laughter is heard of happy, healthy kids," he said.

Independent analyst Stuart Rothenberg says on that issue, Senator Kerry may have scored some points."People who went in watching this debate with the assumption that the president would come off much better on national security may have seen the candidates pretty evenly matched and might have said, 'Whoa, Senator John Kerry looks pretty resolute, maybe I ought to give him another look'," he said.

Chapter II 第二章
Neoplasms (C00-D48)
肿瘤 ( C00-D48 )
This chapter contains the following broad groups of neoplasms:
本章含下列各大群的肿瘤 :
Malignant neoplasms, stated or presumed to be primary, of specified
sites, except of lymphoid, haematopoietic and related tissue
肯定或推测为原发性恶性肿瘤 ( 淋巴、造血或其相
关组织除外 )
Malignant neoplasms, of ill-defined, secondary and unspecified sites
Malignant neoplasms, stated or presumed to be primary, of lymphoid,
haematopoietic and related tissue

Malignant neoplasms of independent (primary)multiple sites
独立 ( 原发 ) 的多发部位之恶性肿瘤
In situ neoplasms
Benign neoplasms
Neoplasms of uncertain or unknown behaviour [see note, page 240]
未确定和不知作用的肿瘤〔参考第 240 页注解〕

There are a number of major morphological (histological) groups of malignant neoplasms:
carcinomas including squamous (cell) and adenocarcinomas; sarcomas; other soft tissue
tumours including mesotheliomas; lymphomas (Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's); leukaemia; other
specified and site-specific types; and unspecified cancers. Cancer is a generic term and
may be used for any of the above groups, although it is rarely applied to the malignant
neoplasms of lymphatic, haematopoietic and related tissue. "Carcinoma" is
sometimes used incorrectly as a synonym for "cancer".
In Chapter Ⅱ neoplasms are classified predominantly by site within broad groupings for
behaviour. In a few exceptional cases morphology is indicated in the category and
subcategory titles. For those wishing to identify the histological type of neoplasm,
comprehensive separate morphology codes are provided on pages 1177-1204.
These morphology codes are derived from the second edition of International Classification
of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O), which is a dual-axis classification providing
independent coding systems for topography and morphology.
Morphology codes have six digits: the first four digits identify the histological type;
the fifth digit is the behaviour code (malignant primary, malignant secondary
(metastatic), in situ, benign, uncertain whether malignant or benign); and the sixth digit
is a grading code (differentiation) for solid tumours, and is also used as a special code
for lymphomas and leukaemias.
恶性肿瘤在形态学上 ( 组织学上 ) 主要分为 : 癌 ,
含鳞状细胞及腺癌 ; 恶性肉瘤 ; 其他软组织肿瘤 (
含间皮细胞瘤 ) ; 淋巴瘤 ( 何杰金和非何杰金氏 )
; 白血病 ; 其他明示和部位明示类型 ; 和未明示癌
。癌是总称名词 , 可用於上述任何群 , 虽然很少用
於淋巴、造血和相关组织的肿瘤 , 癌瘤 ( Carcinoma ) 与癌
( Cancer ) 并非同义字。
在第二章肿瘤主要以部位分类 , 常包括广泛而行为
不同之肿瘤。只有少数的例外 , 其型态学被明示在
分项标题中。若欲确认肿瘤组织学之类型 , 可参考
第 1177-1204 页内完整的形态学码。
这些形态学码源引自第二版的国际肿瘤疾病分类 (
ICD-O ) , 用二轴分类来提供解剖和形态学独立码系统

形态学码有六个位码 , 前四个位码为组织学上分类
, 第五个位码是性态码 ( 原发恶性 , 续发恶性 ( 转
移 ) , 原位 , 良性 , 未确定是否恶性或良性 ) , 第
六个位码是固体肿瘤等级码 ( 分化 ) , 并常用为淋

独立性 ( 原发性 ) 多发部位的恶性肿瘤 ( C97 )

Malignant neoplasms of independent (primary) multiple sites
Note: For use of this category, reference should be made to the mortality coding rules and
guidelines in Volume 2.

Recurrent depressive disorder
A disorder characterized by repeated episodes of depression as described for depressive
episode (F32.-), without any history of independent episodes of mood elevation and
increased energy (mania). There may however, be brief episodes of mild mood elevation and
overactivity (hypomania) immediately after a depressive episode, sometimes precipitated by
antidepressant treatment. The more severe forms of recurrent depressive disorder (F33.2
and F33.3) have much in common with earlier concepts such as manic-depressive depression,
melancholia vital depression and endogenous depression. The first episode may occur at any
age from childhood to old age, the onset may be either acute or insidious, and the
duration varies from a few weeks to many months. The risk that a patient with recurrent
depressive disorder will have an episode of mania never disappears completely, however
many depressive episodes have been experienced. If such an episode does occur, the
diagnosis should be changed to bipolar affective disorder (F31 .-).
Includes: recurrent episodes of:
. depressive reaction
. psychogenic depression
