A04.8 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other specified bacterial intestinal infections. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code A048 is used to code Yersinia pseudotuberculosis

Yersinia pseudotuberculosis is a Gram-negative bacterium that causes Far East scarlet-like fever in humans, who occasionally get infected zoonotically, most often through the food-borne route. Animals are also infected by Y. pseudotuberculosis. The bacterium is urease positive.

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code A04.8 and a single ICD9 code, 008.49 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
