ICD-10-CM Code C96.0
Multifocal and multisystemic (disseminated) Langerhans-cell histiocytosis

BILLABLE
Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

C96.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of multifocal and multisystemic (disseminated) Langerhans-cell histiocytosis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code C960 is used to code Letterer-Siwe disease

Letterer–Siwe disease is an old name for Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), from a time when LCH was thought to be several different diseases; Letterer–Siwe disease, Hand-Schuller-Christian disease, Eosinophilic granuloma and Hashimoto-Pritzker disease. Later they were all put together under the name Histiocytosis X. The X was found to be the Langerhans cell, a dendritic white blood cell. LCH is not believed to be genetic, even though there have been a few reports of more than one person affected by LCH within the same family. Still to this day, the cause is unknown, after researchers have worked very hard on trying to figure it out for decades.

Inclusion Terms:
Inclusion Terms
Inclusion Terms are a list of concepts for which a specific code is used. The list of Inclusion Terms is useful for determining the correct code in some cases, but the list is not necessarily exhaustive.
Histiocytosis X, multisystemic
Letterer-Siwe disease
Code Type-1 Excludes:
Type-1 Excludes
Type-1 Excludes mean the conditions excluded are mutually exclusive and should never be coded together. Excludes 1 means "do not code here."
Adult pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis - instead, use code J84.82
Multifocal and unisystemic Langerhans-cell histiocytosis - instead, use code C96.5
Unifocal Langerhans-cell histiocytosis - instead, use code C96.6

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 C96.0 and a single ICD9 code, 202.50 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
