Valid for Submission
C22.2 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of hepatoblastoma. The code C22.2 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 C22.2 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like hepatoblastoma.
The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: hepatoblastoma .
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code C22.2 are found in the index:
- - Hepatoblastoma - C22.2
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- HEPATOBLASTOMA-. a malignant neoplasm occurring in young children primarily in the liver composed of tissue resembling embryonal or fetal hepatic epithelium or mixed epithelial and mesenchymal tissues. stedman 25th ed
- HEP G2 CELLS-. a human liver tumor cell line used to study a variety of liver specific metabolic functions.
Diagnostic Related Groups - MS-DRG Mapping
|MS-DRG||MS-DRG Title||MCD||Relative Weight|
|435||MALIGNANCY OF HEPATOBILIARY SYSTEM OR PANCREAS WITH MCC||07||1.7528|
|436||MALIGNANCY OF HEPATOBILIARY SYSTEM OR PANCREAS WITH CC||07||1.1202|
|437||MALIGNANCY OF HEPATOBILIARY SYSTEM OR PANCREAS WITHOUT CC/MCC||07||0.8945|
The relative weight of a diagnostic related group determines the reimbursement rate based on the severity of a patient's illness and the associated cost of care during hospitalization.
Convert C22.2 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code C22.2 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.
Table of Neoplasms
The code C22.2 is included in the table of neoplasms by anatomical site. For each site there are six possible code numbers according to whether the neoplasm in question is malignant, benign, in situ, of uncertain behavior, or of unspecified nature. The description of the neoplasm will often indicate which of the six columns is appropriate.
Where such descriptors are not present, the remainder of the Index should be consulted where guidance is given to the appropriate column for each morphological (histological) variety listed. However, the guidance in the Index can be overridden if one of the descriptors mentioned above is present.
Information for Patients
Your liver is the largest organ inside your body. It helps your body digest food, store energy, and remove poisons. Primary liver cancer starts in the liver. Metastatic liver cancer starts somewhere else and spreads to your liver.
Risk factors for primary liver cancer include
- Having hepatitis B or C
- Heavy alcohol use
- Having cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver
- Having hemochromatosis, an iron storage disease
- Obesity and diabetes
Symptoms can include a lump or pain on the right side of your abdomen and yellowing of the skin. However, you may not have symptoms until the cancer is advanced. This makes it harder to treat. Doctors use tests that examine the liver and the blood to diagnose liver cancer. Treatment options include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or liver transplantation.
