C34.31 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of lower lobe, right 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 lower lobe, bronchus or lung (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 C34.31 and a single ICD9 code, 162.5 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
