ICD-10-CM Code M15.2
Bouchard's nodes (with arthropathy)

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

M15.2 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of bouchard's nodes (with arthropathy). A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code M152 is used to code Bouchard's nodes

Bouchard's nodes are hard, bony outgrowths or gelatinous cysts on the proximal interphalangeal joints (the middle joints of fingers or toes.) They are a sign of osteoarthritis. Seen commonly in osteoarthritis, they are caused by formation of calcific spurs of the articular (joint) cartilage. Not often seen in rheumatoid arthritis, they are caused by antibody deposition to the synovium.
