Clinical Information
  • 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
Applies To
  • Lymphoproliferative disease (chronic) NOS
  • Megakaryocytic myelosclerosis
  • Myeloproliferative disease (chronic) NOS
  • Panmyelosis (acute)

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 238.79 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?
