The ICD code D561 is used to code Beta thalassemia
Beta thalassemias (β thalassemias) are a group of inherited blood disorders. They are caused by reduced or absent synthesis of the beta chains of hemoglobin that result in variable outcomes ranging from severe anemia to clinically asymptomatic individuals. Global annual incidence is estimated at 1 in 100,000. Beta thalassemia (β thalassemia) is a form of thalassemia caused by mutations in the HBB gene on chromosome 11, inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. The severity of the disease depends on the nature of the mutation.
