2013 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 238.7
Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of other lymphatic and hematopoietic tissues
- An acute myeloid leukemia characterized by bone marrow fibrosis. The prognosis is usually poor. (WHO, 2001)
- Chronic myeloproliferative disorders (CMPDs) are clonal hematopoietic stem cell disorders, characterized by proliferation in the bone marrow of one or more of the myeloid (i.e., granulocytic, erythroid, and megakaryocytic) lineages. The proliferation is associated with relatively normal, effective maturation, resulting in increased numbers of granulocytes, red blood cells, and/or platelets in the peripheral blood. CMPDs are primarily diseases of adults.
- There are 8 ICD-9-CM codes below 238.7 that define this diagnosis in greater detail. Do not use this code on a reimbursement claim.
