ICD-10-CM Code C49.9
Malignant neoplasm of connective and soft tissue, unspecified

BILLABLE

| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

C49.9 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of connective and soft tissue, unspecified. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code C49 is used to code Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans

Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a very rare tumor. It is a rare neoplasm of the dermis layer of the skin, and is classified as a sarcoma. There is only about one case per million per year. DFSP is a fibrosarcoma, more precisely a cutaneous soft tissue sarcoma. In many respects, the disease behaves as a benign tumor, but in 2–5% of cases it can metastasize, so it should be considered to have malignant potential. It occurs most often in adults in their thirties; it has been described congenitally, in children, and the elderly. It accounts for approximately 2–6% of soft tissue sarcoma cancers.
