M05.642 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis of left hand with involvement of other organs and systems. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code M05 is used to code Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a long lasting autoimmune disorder that primarily affects joints. It typically results in warm, swollen, and painful joints. Pain and stiffness often worsen following rest. Most commonly, the wrist and hands are involved, with the same joints typically involved on both sides of the body. The disease may also affect other parts of the body. This may result in a low red blood cell count, inflammation around the lungs, and inflammation around the heart. Fever and low energy may also be present. Often, symptoms come on gradually over weeks to months.
