- C90.0 Multiple myeloma NON-BILLABLE
The ICD code C900 is used to code Multiple myeloma
Multiple myeloma (myelo- + -oma, "marrow" + "tumor"), is a cancer of plasma cells, a type of white blood cell normally responsible for producing antibodies. In multiple myeloma, collections of abnormal plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow, where they interfere with the production of normal blood cells. Most cases of multiple myeloma also feature the production of a paraprotein—an abnormal antibody which can cause kidney problems. Bone lesions and hypercalcemia (high blood calcium levels) are also often encountered.
