ICD-10-CM Code D58.0
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
D58.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of hereditary spherocytosis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code D580 is used to code Hereditary spherocytosis
Hereditary spherocytosis (also known as Minkowski–Chauffard syndrome) is an autosomal dominant abnormality of erythrocytes. The disorder is caused by mutations in genes relating to membrane proteins that allow for the erythrocytes to change shape. The abnormal erythrocytes are sphere-shaped (spherocytosis) rather than the normal biconcave disk shaped. Dysfunctional membrane proteins interfere with the cell's ability to be flexible to travel from the arteries to the smaller capillaries. This difference in shape also makes the red blood cells more prone to rupture. Cells with these dysfunctional proteins are taken for degradation at the spleen. This shortage of erythrocytes results in hemolytic anemia.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)
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 282.0 was previously used, D58.0 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
