| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

ICD Code J12 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the six child codes of J12 that describes the diagnosis 'viral pneumonia, not elsewhere classified' in more detail.

The ICD code J12 is used to code Bronchopneumonia

Bronchopneumonia, bronchial pneumonia or bronchogenic pneumonia (not to be confused with lobar pneumonia) is the acute inflammation of the walls of the bronchioles. It is a type of pneumonia characterized by multiple foci of isolated, acute consolidation, affecting one or more pulmonary lobules.
