Clinical Information
  • An acute or chronic inflammation of the bone and its structures due to infection with pyogenic bacteria.
  • Inflammation of the bone caused by an infection, which may spread to the bone marrow and tissues near the bone. Osteomyelitis can cause severe pain in the infected bone. If it is not treated, it can kill bone tissue.
  • Inflammation of the bone marrow and adjacent bone caused by a pyogenic organism; it may remain localized or may spread through the bone to involve the marrow, cortex, cancellous tissue, and periosteum.
Applies To
  • Osteitis or osteomyelitis NOS, with or without mention of periostitis
Use Additional
  • Use additional code to identify major osseous defect, if applicable (731.3)
