The ICD code J840 is used to code Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia
Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP), also known as cryptogenic organizing pneumonia, is a form of non-infectious pneumonia; more specifically, BOOP is an inflammation of the bronchioles (bronchiolitis) and surrounding tissue in the lungs. It is often a complication of an existing chronic inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, or it can be a side effect of certain medications such as amiodarone. BOOP was first described by Gary Epler in 1985.
