Lyme disease

| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

ICD Code A69.2 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the five child codes of A69.2 that describes the diagnosis 'lyme disease' in more detail.

The ICD code A692 is used to code Erythema chronicum migrans

Erythema chronicum migrans (New Latin, literally, "chronic migrating redness") refers to the rash often (though not always) seen in the early stage of Lyme disease. It can appear anywhere from one day to one month after a tick bite. This rash does not represent an allergic reaction to the bite, but rather an actual skin infection with the Lyme bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. "Erythema migrans is the only manifestation of Lyme disease in the United States that is sufficiently distinctive to allow clinical diagnosis in the absence of laboratory confirmation.". It is a pathognomonic sign: a physician-identified rash warrants an instant diagnosis of Lyme disease and immediate treatment without further testing, even by the strict criteria of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Such target lesions (bull's-eye rashes) are characteristic of Borrelia infections, and no other pathogens are known that cause this form of rash.
