Precoordinated expressions consist of a single concept identifier, followed optionally by any term that is associated with that concept. While the use of a term is not mandated, it is often preferable to include preferred terms from an appropriate dialect within the expressions to improve the human-readability of the expression. For example:
73211009 |diabetes mellitus|
As mentioned, the syntax does not require a term to be used with each concept identifier, so the following is also a valid expression:
73211009
