C58 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of placenta. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code C58 is used to code Choriocarcinoma

Choriocarcinoma is a malignant, trophoblastic cancer, usually of the placenta. It is characterized by "early hematogenous spread" to the lungs. It belongs to the malignant end of the spectrum in gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). It is also classified as a germ cell tumor and may arise in the testis or ovary.

Specialty: Oncology
MeSH Code: D002822
ICD 9 Code: 181

Micrograph of choriocarcinoma showing both of the components necessary for the diagnosis - cytotrophoblasts and syncytiotrophoblasts. The syncytiotrophoblasts are multinucleated and have a dark staining cytoplasm. The cytotrophoblasts are mononuclear and have a pale staining cytoplasm. H&E stain.

Malignant neoplasm of placenta (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 181 was previously used, C58 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
