P78.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of perinatal intestinal perforation. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code P780 is used to code Meconium peritonitis

Meconium peritonitis refers to rupture of the bowel prior to birth, resulting in fetal stool (meconium) escaping into the surrounding space (peritoneum) leading to inflammation (peritonitis). Despite the bowel rupture, many infants born after meconium peritonitis in utero have normal bowels and have no further issues.
