ICD-10-CM Code E83.5
Disorders of calcium metabolism
Non-Billable CodeNon-Billable means the code is not sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis. Use a child code to capture more detail.
ICD Code E83.5 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the four child codes of E83.5 that describes the diagnosis 'disorders of calcium metabolism' in more detail.

The ICD code E835 is used to code Nephrocalcinosis
Nephrocalcinosis, once known as Albright's calcinosis after Fuller Albright, or "Anderson-Carr" Kidneys, is a term originally used to describe deposition of calcium salts in the renal parenchyma due to hyperparathyroidism. It is now more commonly used to describe diffuse, fine, renal parenchymal calcification on radiology. During its early stages, nephrocalcinosis is visible on x-ray, and appears as a fine granular mottling over the renal outlines. These outlines eventually come together to form a dense mass. It is most commonly seen as an incidental finding with medullary sponge kidney on an abdominal x-ray. However, it may be severe enough to cause (as well as be caused by) renal tubular acidosis or even end stage renal failure, due to disruption of the renal tissue by the deposited calcium.
