ICD-10-CM Code L50.8
Other urticaria

Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

L50.8 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other urticaria. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code L508 is used to code Muckle-Wells syndrome

Muckle–Wells syndrome (MWS), also known as (UDA), is a rare autosomal dominant disease which causes sensorineural deafness, recurrent hives, and can lead to amyloidosis. Individuals with MWS often have episodic fever, chills, and joint pain. As a result, MWS is considered a type of periodic fever syndrome. MWS is caused by a defect in the CIAS1 gene which creates the protein cryopyrin. MWS is closely related to two other syndromes, familial cold urticaria and neonatal onset multisystem inflammatory disease—in fact, all three are related to mutations in the same gene and subsumed under the term cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS).
