Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
M35.5 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of multifocal fibrosclerosis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code M355 is used to code Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis
Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) or nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy (NFD) is a rare and serious syndrome that involves fibrosis of skin, joints, eyes, and internal organs. The first cases were identified in 1997 and its cause is not fully understood. However, evidence suggests NSF is associated with exposure to gadolinium (with gadolinium-based MRI contrast agents being frequently used as contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)) in patients with severe kidney failure. Epidemiological studies suggest that the incidence of NSF is unrelated to gender, race, or age and it is not thought to have a genetic basis. A registry for NSF has identified about 335 cases as of 2011.
