Clinical Information
  • A cancer of the immune system that is marked by the presence of a type of cell called the reed-sternberg cell. The two major types of hodgkin lymphoma are classical hodgkin lymphoma and nodular lymphocyte-predominant hodgkin lymphoma. Symptoms include the painless enlargement of lymph nodes, spleen, or other immune tissue. Other symptoms include fever, weight loss, fatigue, or night sweats.
  • A lymphoma, previously known as hodgkin's disease, characterized by the presence of reed-sternberg cells. There are two distinct subtypes: nodular lymphocyte predominant hodgkin lymphoma and classical hodgkin lymphoma. Hodgkin lymphoma has a bimodal age distribution, and involves primarily lymph nodes. Current therapy for hodgkin lymphoma has resulted in an excellent outcome and cure for the majority of patients.
  • A malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and general lymphoid tissue. In the classical variant, giant usually multinucleate hodgkin's and reed-sternberg cells are present; in the nodular lymphocyte predominant variant, lymphocytic and histiocytic cells are seen.
  • A malignant disease of the lymphatic system that is characterized by painless enlargement of lymph nodes, the spleen, or other lymphatic tissue. It is sometimes accompanied by symptoms such as fever, weight loss, fatigue, and night sweats.
  • An obsolete term referring to hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Hodgkin disease is a type of lymphoma. lymphoma is cancer of lymph tissue found in the lymph nodes, spleen, liver, and bone marrow. The first sign of hodgkin disease is often an enlarged lymph node. The disease can spread to nearby lymph nodes. Later it may spread to the lungs, liver or bone marrow. The cause is unknown. Hodgkin disease is rare. Symptoms include
    • painless swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin
    • fever and chills
    • night sweats
    • weight loss
    • loss of appetite
    • itchy skin
    doctors can diagnose hodgkin disease with a biopsy. This involves removing and examining a piece of tissue under a microscope. Treatment varies depending on how far the disease has spread and often includes radiation therapy or chemotherapy. The earlier the disease is diagnosed, the more effective the treatment. In most cases, hodgkin disease can be cured. nih: national cancer institute
  • Malignant disease characterized by progressive enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and general lymphoid tissue, and the presence of large, usually multinucleate, cells (reed-sternberg cells) of unknown origin.

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 201.9 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?
