ICD-10-CM Code K13.0
Diseases of lips
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
K13.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of diseases of lips. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code K130 is used to code Angular cheilitis
Angular cheilitis (AC), also known as rhagades, perlèche, cheilosis, angular cheilosis, commissural cheilitis, or angular stomatitis, is inflammation of one, or more commonly both, of the corners of the mouth. It is a type of cheilitis (inflammation of the lips) and is the second most common type of lip infection. Angular cheilitis often represents an opportunistic infection of fungi and/or bacteria, with multiple local and systemic predisposing factors being involved in the initiation and persistence of the lesion. Such factors include nutritional deficiencies, overclosure of the mouth, dry mouth, a lip-licking habit, drooling, immunosuppression, and others, such as the wearing of poor fitted dentures. Treatment for angular cheilitis varies based on the exact causes of the condition in each case, but often an antifungal cream is used among other measures. It is a fairly common problem, and is more prevalent in people without any natural teeth who wear dentures, and in elderly people, although it may also occur in children.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)
This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 528.5 was previously used, K13.0 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
