ICD-10-CM Code C34.3
Malignant neoplasm of lower lobe, bronchus or lung
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 C34.3 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the three child codes of C34.3 that describes the diagnosis 'malignant neoplasm of lower lobe, bronchus or lung' in more detail.

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.
