ICD-10-CM Code D81.1
Severe combined immunodeficiency [SCID] with low T- and B-cell numbers
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
D81.1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of severe combined immunodeficiency [SCID] with low T- and B-cell numbers. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code D811 is used to code Severe combined immunodeficiency
Severe combined immunodeficiency, SCID, also known as alymphocytosis, Glanzmann–Riniker syndrome, severe mixed immunodeficiency syndrome, and thymic alymphoplasia, is a genetic disorder characterized by the disturbed development of functional T cells and B cells caused by numerous genetic mutations that result in heterogeneous clinical presentations. SCID involves defective antibody response due to either direct involvement with B lymphocytes or through improper B lymphocyte activation due to non-functional T-helper cells. Consequently, both "arms" (B cells and T cells) of the adaptive immune system are impaired due to a defect in one of several possible genes. SCID is the most severe form of primary immunodeficiencies, and there are now at least nine different known genes in which mutations lead to a form of SCID. It is also known as the bubble baby disease and bubble boy disease because its victims are extremely vulnerable to infectious diseases and some of them, such as David Vetter, have become famous for living in a sterile environment. SCID is the result of an immune system so highly compromised that it is considered almost absent.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)
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 D81.1 and a single ICD9 code, 279.2 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
