ICD-10-CM Code C34.2
Malignant neoplasm of middle lobe, bronchus or lung

| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

C34.2 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of middle lobe, bronchus or lung. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


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.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Malignant neoplasm of middle lobe, bronchus or lung (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 162.4 was previously used, C34.2 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
