The ICD code A020 is used to code Gastroenteritis

Gastroenteritis, also known as infectious diarrhea, is inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract that involves the stomach and small intestine. Signs and symptoms include some combination of diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Fever, lack of energy, and dehydration may also occur. This typically lasts less than two weeks. It is unrelated to influenza though it has been called the stomach flu.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Salmonella gastroenteritis (exact match)

This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 003.0 was previously used, A02.0 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
