ICD-10-CM Code P61.0
Transient neonatal thrombocytopenia
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
Newborn OnlyCode is only used for patients less than 1 year old.
P61.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of transient neonatal thrombocytopenia. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code P610 is used to code Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia
Neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAITP or NAIT or NATP or NAT for short; or fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia, FNAIT, feto-maternal alloimmune thrombocytopenia, FMAITP or FMAIT) is a disease that affects fetuses and newborns, in which the platelet count is decreased (a state known as thrombocytopenia). Platelet antigens are inherited from both mother and father. FNAIT is caused by antibodies specific for platelet antigens inherited from the father but which are absent in the mother. Fetomaternal transfusions (or fetomaternal hemorrhage) results in the recognition of these antigens by the mother's immune system as non-self, with the subsequent generation of allo-reactive antibodies which cross the placenta. NAIT, hence, is caused by transplacental passage of maternal platelet-specific alloantibody and rarely human leukocyte antigen (HLA) allo-antibodies (which are expressed by platelets) to fetuses whose platelets express the corresponding antigens. NAIT occurs in somewhere between 1/800 and 1/5000 live births. More recent studies of NAIT seem to indicate that it occurs in around 1/600 live births in the Caucasian population.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)
This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 776.1 was previously used, P61.0 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
