|Short Description:||Marburg virus disease|
|Long Description:||Marburg virus disease|
|Status:||Valid for Submission|
A98.3 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of marburg virus disease. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Atypical Marburg virus disease
- Disease due to Filoviridae
- Disease due to Filoviridae
- Filoviral hemorrhagic fever
- Marburg virus disease
- Marburg Virus Disease-. an rna virus infection of rhesus, vervet, and squirrel monkeys transmissible to man.
- RNA-. a polynucleotide consisting essentially of chains with a repeating backbone of phosphate and ribose units to which nitrogenous bases are attached. rna is unique among biological macromolecules in that it can encode genetic information, serve as an abundant structural component of cells, and also possesses catalytic activity.

Viral hemorrhagic fevers (VHFs) are a group of illnesses caused by four families of viruses. These include the Ebola and Marburg, Lassa fever, and yellow fever viruses. VHFs have common features: they affect many organs, they damage the blood vessels, and they affect the body's ability to regulate itself. Some VHFs cause mild disease, but some, like Ebola or Marburg, cause severe disease and death.
VHFs are found around the world. Specific diseases are usually limited to areas where the animals that carry them live. For example, Lassa fever is limited to rural areas of West Africa where rats and mice carry the virus.
The risk for travelers is low, but you should avoid visiting areas where there are disease outbreaks. Because there are no effective treatments for some of these viral infections, there is concern about their use in bioterrorism.
