| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

C70.9 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of meninges, unspecified. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code C70 is used to code Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor

Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is a rare tumor usually diagnosed in childhood. Although usually a brain tumor, AT/RT can occur anywhere in the central nervous system (CNS) including the spinal cord. About 60% will be in the posterior cranial fossa (particularly the cerebellum). One review estimated 52% posterior fossa, 39% sPNET (supratentorial primitive neuroectodermal tumors), 5% pineal, 2% spinal, and 2% multi-focal.
