ICD-10-CM Code D69.0
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
D69.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of allergic purpura. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code D690 is used to code Henoch-Schönlein purpura
Henoch–Schönlein purpura (HSP, also known as anaphylactoid purpura, purpura rheumatica, and Schönlein–Henoch purpura) is a disease of the skin and other organs that most commonly affects children. In the skin, the disease causes palpable purpura (small hemorrhages); often with joint and abdominal pain. With kidney involvement, there may be a loss of small amounts of blood and protein in the urine, but this usually goes unnoticed; in a small proportion of cases, the kidney involvement proceeds to chronic kidney disease. HSP is often preceded by an infection, such as a throat infection.
