ICD Code J18 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the five child codes of J18 that describes the diagnosis 'pneumonia, unspecified organism' in more detail.

The ICD code J18 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.
