C83.74 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of burkitt lymphoma, lymph nodes of axilla and upper limb. 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:
- Burkitt lymphoma of lymph nodes of axilla and upper limb
- Burkitt's tumor of lymph nodes of axilla AND/OR upper limb
- Burkitt Lymphoma-. a form of undifferentiated malignant lymphoma usually found in central africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. it is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. b-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of burkitt lymphoma. the epstein-barr virus (herpesvirus 4, human) has been isolated from burkitt lymphoma cases in africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-african cases are ebv-negative.
- Herpesvirus 4, Human-. the type species of lymphocryptovirus, subfamily gammaherpesvirinae, infecting b-cells in humans. it is thought to be the causative agent of infectious mononucleosis and is strongly associated with oral hairy leukoplakia (leukoplakia, hairy;), burkitt lymphoma; and other malignancies.
- Receptors, CXCR5-. cxcr receptors isolated initially from burkitt lymphoma cells. cxcr5 receptors are expressed on mature, recirculating b-lymphocytes and are specific for chemokine cxcl13.

Lymphoma is a cancer of a part of the immune system called the lymph system. There are many types of lymphoma. One type is Hodgkin disease. The rest are called non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
Non-Hodgkin lymphomas begin when a type of white blood cell, called a T cell or B cell, becomes abnormal. The cell divides again and again, making more and more abnormal cells. These abnormal cells can spread to almost any other part of the body. Most of the time, doctors don't know why a person gets non-Hodgkin lymphoma. You are at increased risk if you have a weakened immune system or have certain types of infections.
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma can cause many symptoms, such as :
- Swollen, painless lymph nodes in the neck, armpits or groin
- Unexplained weight loss
- Soaking night sweats
- Coughing, trouble breathing or chest pain
- Weakness and tiredness that don't go away
- Pain, swelling or a feeling of fullness in the abdomen
Your doctor will diagnose lymphoma with a physical exam, blood tests, a chest x-ray, and a biopsy. Treatments include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, biological therapy, or therapy to remove proteins from the blood. Targeted therapy uses drugs or other substances that attack specific cancer cells with less harm to normal cells. Biologic therapy boosts your body's own ability to fight cancer. If you don't have symptoms, you may not need treatment right away. This is called watchful waiting.
