F34.1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of dysthymic disorder. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code F341 is used to code Dysthymia
Dysthymia (/dɪsˈθaɪmiə/ dis-THY-mee-ə, from Ancient Greek δυσθυμία, "bad state of mind"), sometimes also called neurotic depression, dysthymic disorder, or chronic depression, is a mood disorder consisting of the same cognitive and physical problems as in depression, with less severe but longer-lasting symptoms. The concept was coined by Robert Spitzer as a replacement for the term "depressive personality" in the late 1970s. In 2013, when the American Psychiatric Association released the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders known as DSM-5, the name Dysthymia was changed to Persistent Depressive Disorder.
