The ICD code D595 is used to code Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria
Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria or paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH), previously Marchiafava–Micheli syndrome, is a rare, acquired, life-threatening disease of the blood characterized by destruction of red blood cells by the complement system, a part of the body's intrinsic immune system. This destructive process is a result of a defect in the formation of surface proteins on the red blood cell, which normally function to inhibit such immune reactions. Since the complement cascade attacks the red blood cells throughout the circulatory system, the hemolysis is considered an intravascular hemolytic anemia. Other key features of the disease, notably the high incidence of thrombosis, are not totally understood.
