Classification of a disease is meant for understanding a disease in its manifold expressions. It is also necessary to compare and contrast our work with fellow colleagues. A very simple type of classification is easy to follow but usually it is not scientifically very adequate. Similarly a detailed classification may theoretically be easy to follow but is it is difficult and time taking to carry out in practice. Thus a middle type may be quite useful particularly if large number of volunteers and studies are not available. Kuhn's classification is very simple and very popular but misses many things. Shukla et al made a better classification but made it a little long and hence could not become very popular. The present classification is an attempted answer to the above problem.
