A59.01 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of trichomonal vulvovaginitis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code A59 is used to code Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis is a common cause of vaginitis. It is a sexually transmitted infection, and is caused by the single-celled protozoan parasite Trichomonas vaginalis producing mechanical stress on host cells and then ingesting cell fragments after cell death. Trichomoniasis is primarily an infection of the urogenital tract; the most common site of infection is the urethra and the vagina in women.
