ICD-10-CM Code N05.1
Unspecified nephritic syndrome with focal and segmental glomerular lesions
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
N05.1 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of unspecified nephritic syndrome with focal and segmental glomerular lesions. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code N051 is used to code Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis
Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a cause of nephrotic syndrome in children and adolescents, as well as an leading cause of kidney failure in adults. It is also known as "focal glomerular sclerosis" or "focal nodular glomerulosclerosis." It accounts for about a sixth of the cases of nephrotic syndrome. (Minimal change disease (MCD) is by far the most common cause of nephrotic syndrome in children: MCD and primary FSGS may have a similar cause.)
