Valid for Submission
C81.90 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of hodgkin lymphoma, unspecified, unspecified site. The code C81.90 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 C81.90 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like classical hodgkin lymphoma, hodgkin's disease , hodgkin's disease affecting skin, hodgkin's disease in remission, hodgkin's granuloma , hodgkin's sarcoma , etc.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like C81.90 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:
- Classical Hodgkin lymphoma
- Hodgkin's disease
- Hodgkin's disease affecting skin
- Hodgkin's disease in remission
- Hodgkin's granuloma
- Hodgkin's sarcoma
- Hypermelanosis due to Hodgkin's disease
- Hypermelanosis due to neoplasia
- Lymphomatoid papulosis
- Lymphomatoid papulosis with Hodgkin's disease
- Malignant lymphoma in remission
- Non-specific cutaneous reaction in Hodgkin's disease
- Refractory Hodgkin's lymphoma
- Relapsing classical Hodgkin lymphoma

Convert C81.90 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code C81.90 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
Hodgkin disease is a type of lymphoma. Lymphoma is a cancer of a part of the immune system called the lymph system. The first sign of Hodgkin disease is often an enlarged lymph node. The disease can spread to nearby lymph nodes. Later it may spread to the lungs, liver, or bone marrow. The exact cause is unknown.
Hodgkin disease is rare. Symptoms include
- Painless swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, or groin
- Fever and chills
- Night sweats
- Weight loss
- Loss of appetite
- Itchy skin
To diagnose Hodgkin disease, doctors use a physical exam and history, blood tests, and a biopsy. Treatment depends on how far the disease has spread. It often includes radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
The earlier the disease is diagnosed, the more effective the treatment. In most cases, Hodgkin disease can be cured.
