ICD-10-CM Code D61.01
Constitutional (pure) red blood cell aplasia
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
D61.01 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of constitutional (pure) red blood cell aplasia. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code D610 is used to code Diamond-Blackfan anemia
Diamond–Blackfan anemia (DBA), also known as Blackfan-Diamond anemia, inherited pure red cell aplasia and as inherited erythroblastopenia, is a congenital erythroid aplasia that usually presents in infancy. DBA causes low red blood cell counts (anemia), without substantially affecting the other blood components (the platelets and the white blood cells), which are usually normal. This is in contrast to Shwachman–Bodian–Diamond syndrome, in which the bone marrow defect results primarily in neutropenia, and Fanconi anemia, where all cell lines are affected resulting in pancytopenia.

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 284.01 was previously used, D61.01 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
