C75.1 - Malignant neoplasm of pituitary gland

Version 2023
ICD-10:C75.1
Short Description:Malignant neoplasm of pituitary gland
Long Description:Malignant neoplasm of pituitary gland
Status: Valid for Submission
Version:ICD-10-CM 2023
Code Classification:
  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Malignant neoplasms of thyroid and other endocrine glands (C73-C75)
      • Malignant neoplasm of endo glands and related structures (C75)

C75.1 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of malignant neoplasm of pituitary gland. 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 anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms reference this diagnosis code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic fossa (of) pituitary ; Neoplasm, neoplastic hypophysis ; Neoplasm, neoplastic intrasellar ; Neoplasm, neoplastic pituitary (body) (fossa) (gland) (lobe) ; Neoplasm, neoplastic Rathke's pouch ; Neoplasm, neoplastic sella turcica ; etc

Approximate Flag - The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 and ICD-9 codes and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.

Table of Neoplasms

This code is referenced 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.

Patient Education


Pituitary Tumors

Your pituitary gland is a pea-sized gland at the base of your brain. The pituitary is the "master control gland" - it makes hormones that affect growth and the functions of other glands in the body.

Pituitary tumors are common, but often they don't cause health problems. Most people with pituitary tumors never even know they have them. The most common type of pituitary tumor produces hormones and disrupts the balance of hormones in your body. This can cause endocrine diseases such as Cushing's syndrome and hyperthyroidism.

Symptoms of pituitary tumors include:

Pituitary tumors are usually curable. Treatment is often surgery to remove the tumor. Other options include medicines, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.
