ICD-10-CM Code C34.0
Malignant neoplasm of main bronchus
Non-Billable CodeNon-Billable means the code is not sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis. Use a child code to capture more detail.
ICD Code C34.0 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the three child codes of C34.0 that describes the diagnosis 'malignant neoplasm of main bronchus' in more detail.
- C34.0 Malignant neoplasm of main bronchus NON-BILLABLE
The ICD code C34 is used to code Large-cell lung carcinoma with rhabdoid phenotype
Large cell lung carcinoma with rhabdoid phenotype (LCLC-RP) is a rare histological form of lung cancer, currently classified as a variant of large cell lung carcinoma (LCLC). In order for a LCLC to be subclassified as the rhabdoid phenotype variant, at least 10% of the malignant tumor cells must contain distinctive structures composed of tangled intermediate filaments that displace the cell nucleus outward toward the cell membrane. The whorled eosinophilic inclusions in LCLC-RP cells give it a microscopic resemblance to malignant cells found in rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), a rare neoplasm arising from transformed skeletal muscle. Despite their microscopic similarities, LCLC-RP is not associated with rhabdomyosarcoma.
