A01.4 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of paratyphoid fever, unspecified. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like A01.4 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Paratyphoid exanthem
- Paratyphoid fever
- Salmonella infection with skin involvement
- Paratyphoid Fever-. a prolonged febrile illness commonly caused by several paratyphi serotypes of salmonella enterica. it is similar to typhoid fever but less severe.
- Paratyphoid Fever-. a condition resembling typhoid fever that is caused by infection by salmonella enterica serovar parathyphi.
- Paratyphoid Fever A-. paratyphoid fever that is caused by infection with salmonella enterica, serovar paratyphi a.
- Paratyphoid Fever B-. paratyphoid fever that is caused by infection with salmonella enterica, serovar paratyphi b.
- Paratyphoid Fever C-. paratyphoid fever that is caused by infection with salmonella enterica, serovar paratyphi c.

Salmonella is the name of a group of bacteria. In the United States, it is a common cause of foodborne illness. Salmonella occurs in raw poultry, eggs, beef, and sometimes on unwashed fruit and vegetables. You also can get infected after handling pets, especially reptiles like snakes, turtles, and lizards.
- Abdominal cramps
- Possible nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite
Symptoms usually last 4-7 days. Your health care provider diagnoses the infection with a stool test. Most people get better without treatment. Infection can be more serious in older adults, infants, and people with chronic health problems. If Salmonella gets into the bloodstream, it can be serious. The usual treatment is antibiotics.
Typhoid fever, a more serious disease caused by Salmonella, is not common in the United States. It frequently occurs in developing countries.
