P39.4 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of neonatal skin infection. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code P39 is used to code Vertically transmitted infection

A vertically transmitted infection is an infection caused by bacteria, viruses, or in rare cases, parasites transmitted directly from the mother to an embryo, fetus, or baby during pregnancy or childbirth. It can occur when the mother gets an infection as an intercurrent disease in pregnancy. Nutritional deficiencies may exacerbate the risks of perinatal infection.

Specialty: Pediatrics
ICD 9 Code: 771
