K35.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of acute appendicitis with localized peritonitis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code K35 is used to code Appendicitis

Appendicitis (also called epityphlitis) is inflammation of the appendix. Appendicitis commonly presents with right iliac fossa abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and decreased appetite. However, one third to a half of persons do not have these typical signs and symptoms. Severe complications of a ruptured appendix include widespread, painful inflammation of the inner lining of the abdominal wall and sepsis.
