| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

B74.9 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of filariasis, unspecified. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code B74 is used to code Lymphatic filariasis

Lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis tropica, is caused by parasitic worms of the roundworm family. Many cases of the disease have no symptoms. Some people however, develop large amounts of swelling of the arms, legs, or genitals. The skin may also become thicker, and pain may occur. The changes to the body can cause social and economic problems for the affected person.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Unspecified filariasis (exact match)

This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 125.9 was previously used, B74.9 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
