Specific code 2014 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 286.6
Defibrination syndrome
  • Billable Code
  • ICD-9-CM 286.6 will be replaced by an equivalent ICD-10-CM code (or codes) when the United States transitions from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM on October 1, 2015.
  • ICD-9-CM 286.6 is a billable medical code that can be used to specify a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim.
Disease Synonyms
  • Abruptio placentae with disseminated intravascular coagulation (dic)
  • Disseminated intravascular coagulation
  • Disseminated intravascular coagulation due to placental abruption
  • Placental abruption W DIC
  • Purpura fulminans
Clinical Information
  • A disease where the blood clots throughout the body and increases the risk of bleeding
  • A disorder characterized by procoagulant substances entering the general circulation causing a systemic thrombotic process. The activation of the clotting mechanism may arise from any of a number of disorders. A majority of the patients manifest skin lesions, sometimes leading to purpura fulminans.
  • A disorder characterized by reduction in the elements involved in blood coagulation due to their utilization in widespread blood clotting within the vessels.
  • A disorder characterized by systemic pathological activation of blood clotting mechanisms which results in clot formation throughout the body. There is an increase in the risk of hemorrhage as the body is depleted of platelets and coagulation factors.
  • A pathological process in the body where the blood starts to coagulate throughout the whole body. This depletes the body of its platelets and coagulation factors, and there is an increased the risk of hemorrhage.
  • A pathological process where the blood starts to coagulate throughout the whole body. This depletes the body of its platelets and coagulation factors, and there is an increased risk of hemorrhage.
  • Disorder characterized by reduction in the elements involved in blood coagulation due to their utilization in widespread blood clotting within the vessels; the activation of the clotting mechanism may arise from any of a number of disorders; in the late stages, it is marked by profuse hemorrhaging.

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 286.6 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?
