ICD-10-CM Code A98.5
Hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome

Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

A98.5 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code A985 is used to code Nephropathia epidemica

Nephropathia epidemica (NE or epidemic nephropathy) is a type of viral haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) caused by the Puumala virus. The incubation period is three weeks. Nephropathia epidemica has a sudden onset with fever, abdominal pain, headache, back pain and gastrointestinal symptoms. More severe symptoms include internal hemorrhaging. Although fatal in a small percentage of cases, nephropathia epidemica is generally milder than the HFRS that is caused by hantaviruses in other parts of the world. The bank vole is the reservoir for the virus, which humans contract through inhalation of aerosolised vole droppings.
