P36.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of sepsis of newborn due to streptococcus, group B. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code P360 is used to code Group B streptococcal infection

Group B streptococcus infection is the infection caused by the bacteria Streptococcus agalactiae (S. agalactiae) (also known as Group B streptococcus or GBS). Group B streptococcal infection can cause serious illness and sometimes death, especially in newborns, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems. GBS was recognized as a pathogen in cattle by Edmond Nocard and Mollereau in the late 1880s, but its significance as a human pathogen was not discovered before the 1938 when Fry described three fatal cases of puerperal infections caused by GBS. In the early 1960s GBS was recognized as a main cause of neonatal sepsis.
