ICD-10-CM Code D59.1
Other autoimmune hemolytic anemias

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

D59.1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other autoimmune hemolytic anemias. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code D591 is used to code Warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia

Warm Antibody Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (WAIHA) is the most common of the autoimmune hemolytic diseases. About half of the cases are idiopathic, with the other half attributable to a predisposing condition or medications being taken. Contrary to cold autoimmune hemolytic anemia (e.g. cold agglutinin disease and paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria) which happens in cold temperature (28-31°C), WAIHA happens in body temperature.

Autoimmune hemolytic anemias (approximate match)

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 D59.1 and a single ICD9 code, 283.0 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
