P59.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of neonatal jaundice from breast milk inhibitor. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code P59 is used to code Neonatal jaundice

Neonatal jaundice or Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, or Neonatal icterus (from the Greek word ἴκτερος), attributive adjective: icteric, is a yellowing of the skin and other tissues of a newborn infant. A bilirubin level of more than 85 μmol/l (5 mg/dL) leads to a jaundiced appearance in neonates whereas in adults a level of 34 μmol/l (2 mg/dL) is needed for this to occur. In newborns, jaundice is detected by blanching the skin with pressure applied by a finger so that it reveals underlying skin and subcutaneous tissue. Jaundiced newborns have yellow discoloration of the white part of the eye, and yellowing of the face, extending down onto the chest.
