A subset whose membership is defined by an intensional subset definition.

An intensional subset definition is defined as

A subset definition in which the membership is represented by a set of rules specifying the conditions for inclusion.</span>- A subset definition in which the membership is represented by a set of rules specifying the conditions for inclusion.

##### Notes

- The SNOMED CT expression constraint language is the standard way to represent an
*intensional subset definition*of a subset of SNOMED CT concepts. - A row in a Query Specification Reference Set is the standard way to distribute an
*intensional subset definition*of a subset of SNOMED CT concepts.

##### Example

An example of an intensional subset definition is

*concepts that are types of respiratory disease characterized by edema*. This is represented as follows in expression constraint language:

< 19829001 |disorder of lung| : 116676008 |associated morphology| = 79654002 |edema|
