ICD-10-CM Code B43.2
Subcutaneous pheomycotic abscess and cyst

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

B43.2 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of subcutaneous pheomycotic abscess and cyst. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code B43 is used to code Chromoblastomycosis

Chromoblastomycosis (also known as chromomycosis, cladosporiosis, Fonseca's disease, Pedroso's disease, phaeosporotrichosis, or verrucous dermatitis) is a long-term fungal infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissue (a chronic subcutaneous mycosis). The infection occurs most commonly in tropical or subtropical climates, often in rural areas. It can be caused by many different types of fungi which become implanted under the skin, often by thorns or splinters. Chromoblastomycosis spreads very slowly; it is rarely fatal and usually has a good prognosis, but it can be very difficult to cure. The several treatment options include medication and surgery.

Chromoblastomycosis (approximate match)

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 B43.2 and a single ICD9 code, 117.2 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
