- There are 9 ICD-9-CM codes below 516 that define this diagnosis in greater detail. Do not use this code on a reimbursement claim.
- A pulmonary alveoli-filling disease, characterized by dense phospholipoproteinaceous deposits in the alveoli, cough, and dyspnea. This disease is often related to, congenital or acquired, impaired processing of pulmonary surfactants by alveolar macrophages, a process dependent on granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor
- A rare lung disorder characterized by the filling of the pulmonary alveoli with proteinaceous material which stains positive with periodic acid-schiff stain. It may be idiopathic or secondary due to hematologic malignancies or the inhalation of mineral dusts. Signs and symptoms include dyspnea, cough and low grade fever
- Unknown etiology marked by chronic filling of alveoli with proteinaceous, lipid-rich, granular material consisting of surfactant and debris of necrotic cells
