ICD-10-CM Code N05.5
Unspecified nephritic syndrome with diffuse mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis

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

N05.5 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of unspecified nephritic syndrome with diffuse mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code N055 is used to code Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis ("MPGN"), also known as mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis, is a type of glomerulonephritis caused by deposits in the kidney glomerular mesangium and basement membrane (GBM) thickening, activating complement and damaging the glomeruli.

Specialty: Urology
MeSH Codes: D015432, D015432, D015432
ICD 9 Codes: 581.2, 582.2, 583.2

MS-DRG Mapping

  • DRG Group #698-700 - Other kidney and urinary tract diagnoses with MCC.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Nephritis and nephropathy, not specified as acute or chronic, with lesion of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code N05.5 and a single ICD9 code, 583.2 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
