2012 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 516.31
Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
- Short description: Idiopath pulmon fibrosis.
- ICD-9-CM 516.31 is a billable medical code that can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.
- You are viewing the 2012 version of ICD-9-CM 516.31.
- More recent version(s) of ICD-9-CM 516.31: 2013 2014.
- A common interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, usually occurring between 50-70 years of age. Clinically, it is characterized by an insidious onset of breathlessness with exertion and a nonproductive cough, leading to progressive dyspnea. Pathological features show scant interstitial inflammation, patchy collagen fibrosis, prominent fibroblast proliferation foci, and microscopic honeycomb change.
- A disease in which the alveoli (tiny air sacs at the end of the bronchioles in the lungs) are overgrown with fibrous tissue. The cause of the disease is unknown and it gets worse over time. Symptoms include difficult, painful breathing and shortness of breath.
- Chronic and progressive fibrosis of the lung parenchyma of unknown cause.
- Chronic inflammation and progressive fibrosis of the pulmonary alveolar walls with steady progressive dyspnea; finally, resulting in death from lack of oxygen or right heart failure.
- Diffuse interstitial pulmonary fibrosis
- Familial idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
- Interstitial pulmonary fibrosis (ipf), familial
- Pulmonary fibrosis, familial
- Cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 516.31 is one of thousands of ICD-9-CM codes used in healthcare. Although ICD-9-CM and CPT codes are largely numeric, they differ in that CPT codes describe medical procedures and services. Can't find a code?
