ICD-10-CM Code D65
Disseminated intravascular coagulation [defibrination syndrome]

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

D65 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of disseminated intravascular coagulation [defibrination syndrome]. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code D65 is used to code Coagulopathy

Coagulopathy (also called a bleeding disorder) is a condition in which the blood’s ability to coagulate (form clots) is impaired. This condition can cause a tendency toward prolonged or excessive bleeding (bleeding diathesis or bleeding disorder), which may occur spontaneously or following an injury or medical and dental procedures.

Specialty: Hematology
MeSH Codes: D001778, D011695

Inclusion Terms:
Inclusion Terms
Inclusion Terms are a list of concepts for which a specific code is used. The list of Inclusion Terms is useful for determining the correct code in some cases, but the list is not necessarily exhaustive.
Afibrinogenemia, acquired
Consumption coagulopathy
Diffuse or disseminated intravascular coagulation [DIC]
Fibrinolytic hemorrhage, acquired
Fibrinolytic purpura
Purpura fulminans
Code Type-1 Excludes:
Type-1 Excludes
Type-1 Excludes mean the conditions excluded are mutually exclusive and should never be coded together. Excludes 1 means "do not code here."
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (complicating):
Abortion or ectopic or molar pregnancy - instead, use Section O00-O07, O08.1)
In newborn - instead, use Code P60
Pregnancy, childbirth and the puerperium (O45.0, O46.0, O67.0, O72.3) - instead, use code O45.0

MS-DRG Mapping

  • DRG Group #793 - Full term neonate with major problems.
  • DRG Group #813 - Coagulation disorders.


Defibrination syndrome (exact match)

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 286.6 was previously used, D65 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
