ICD-10-CM Code N29
Other disorders of kidney and ureter in diseases classified elsewhere

BILLABLE
Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
Manifestation
Manifestation Code
Certain ICD-10-CM codes identify an underlying condition known as an etiology code. Conditions that arise as a result of an underlying condition (etiology), are referred to as Manifestations. In ICD-10-CM, etiology codes must be coded first, followed by the manifestation codes. When a condition requires etiology and manifestation codes, there is a "use additional code" note following the etiology code and a "code first" note following the manifestation code.

N29 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other disorders of kidney and ureter in diseases classified elsewhere. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code N29 is used to code Kidney disease

Kidney disease, also known as nephropathy or renal disease, is damage to or disease of a kidney. Nephritis is inflammatory kidney disease. Nephrosis is noninflammatory nephropathy. Kidney disease usually causes kidney failure (renal failure) to more or less degree, with the amount depending on the type of disease. In precise usage, disease denotes the structural and etiologic disease entity whereas failure denotes the dysfunction (lack of working well, that is, impaired renal function); but in common usage these meanings overlap; for example, the terms chronic kidney disease and chronic renal failure are usually considered synonymous. Acute kidney disease has often been called acute renal failure, although nephrologists now often tend to call it acute kidney injury.

Coding Notes for N29 Info for medical coders on how to properly use this ICD-10 code

codeFirst:
Underlying disease, such as:
Amyloidosis See code E85.-
Nephrocalcinosis See code E83.5
Schistosomiasis (B65.0-B65.9) See code B65.0-
Code Type-1 Excludes:
Type-1 Excludes
Type-1 Excludes mean the conditions excluded are mutually exclusive and should never be coded together. Excludes 1 means "do not code here."
Disorders of kidney and ureter in:
Cystinosis - instead, use code E72.0
Gonorrhea - instead, use code A54.21
Syphilis - instead, use code A52.75
Tuberculosis - instead, use code A18.11

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)

Unspecified disorder of kidney and ureter (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 N29 and a single ICD9 code, 593.9 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
