B92 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of sequelae of leprosy. The code B92 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code B92 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like cell-mediated immune reaction, downgrading type 1 lepra reaction, histioid leprosy, hypersensitivity reaction mediated by immune complex, lepromatous skin complications , lucio phenomenon, etc. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
B92 is a sequela code, includes a 7th character and should be used for complications that arise as a direct result of a condition like e of leprosy. According to ICD-10-CM Guidelines a "sequela" code should be used for chronic or residual conditions that are complications of an initial acute disease, illness or injury.

The first code describes the nature of the sequela while the second code describes the sequela or late effect.

Convert B92 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code B92 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Mycobacteria are a type of germ. There are many different kinds. The most common one causes tuberculosis. Another one causes leprosy. Still others cause infections that are called atypical mycobacterial infections. They aren't "typical" because they don't cause tuberculosis. But they can still harm people, especially people with other problems that affect their immunity, such as AIDS.
Sometimes you can have these infections with no symptoms at all. At other times, they can cause lung symptoms similar to tuberculosis:
- Weight loss
- Coughing up blood or mucus
- Weakness or fatigue
- Fever and chills
- Night sweats
- Lack of appetite and weight loss
Medicines can treat these infections, but often more than one is needed to cure the infection.
