| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

J21.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of acute bronchiolitis due to respiratory syncytial virus. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code J210 is used to code Human respiratory syncytial virus

Human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a syncytial virus that causes respiratory tract infections. It is a major cause of lower respiratory tract infections and hospital visits during infancy and childhood. A prophylactic medication (not a vaccine) exists for preterm (under 35 weeks gestation) infants, infants with certain congenital heart defects (CHD) or bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), and infants with congenital malformations of the airway. Treatment is limited to supportive care (e.g. C-PAP), including oxygen therapy.
