N17.2 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of acute kidney failure with medullary necrosis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code N172 is used to code Renal papillary necrosis

Renal papillary necrosis is a form of nephropathy involving the necrosis of the renal papilla. Lesions that characterize renal papillary necrosis come from an impairment of the blood supply and from subsequent ischemic necrosis that is diffuse.

Equivalent ICD-9 Codes GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Nephritis and nephropathy, not specified as acute or chronic, with lesion of renal medullary necrosis (approximate match)
Acute kidney failure with lesion of renal medullary [papillary] necrosis (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 N17.2 and a single ICD9 code, 584.7 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
