C93 - Monocytic leukemia

Version 2023
ICD-10:C93
Short Description:Monocytic leukemia
Long Description:Monocytic leukemia
Status: Not Valid for Submission
Version:ICD-10-CM 2023
Code Classification:
  • Neoplasms (C00–D48)
    • Malignant neoplasms of lymphoid, hematopoietic and related tissue (C81-C96)
      • Monocytic leukemia (C93)

C93 is a non-specific and non-billable ICD-10 code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of monocytic leukemia. The code is not specific and is NOT valid for the year 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. Category or Header define the heading of a category of codes that may be further subdivided by the use of 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th characters.

Specific Coding for Monocytic leukemia

Non-specific codes like C93 require more digits to indicate the appropriate level of specificity. Consider using any of the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity when coding for monocytic leukemia:

  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C93.0 for Acute monoblastic/monocytic leukemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.00 for Acute monoblastic/monocytic leukemia, not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.01 for Acute monoblastic/monocytic leukemia, in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.02 for Acute monoblastic/monocytic leukemia, in relapse
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C93.1 for Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.10 for Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.11 for Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.12 for Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, in relapse
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C93.3 for Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.30 for Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.31 for Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.32 for Juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia, in relapse
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C93.9 for Monocytic leukemia, unspecified
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.90 for Monocytic leukemia, unspecified, not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.91 for Monocytic leukemia, unspecified in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.92 for Monocytic leukemia, unspecified in relapse
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - C93.Z for Other monocytic leukemia
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.Z0 for Other monocytic leukemia, not having achieved remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.Z1 for Other monocytic leukemia, in remission
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use C93.Z2 for Other monocytic leukemia, in relapse

Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to this diagnosis code:


Includes

Includes
This note appears immediately under a three character code title to further define, or give examples of, the content of the category.

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia

What is leukemia?

Leukemia is a term for cancers of the blood cells. Leukemia starts in blood-forming tissues such as the bone marrow. Your bone marrow makes the cells which will develop into white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Each type of cell has a different job:

When you have leukemia, your bone marrow makes large numbers of abnormal cells. This problem most often happens with white blood cells. These abnormal cells build up in your bone marrow and blood. They crowd out the healthy blood cells and make it hard for your cells and blood to do their work.

What is acute myeloid leukemia (AML)?

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a type of acute leukemia. "Acute" means that the leukemia usually gets worse quickly if it's not treated. In AML, the bone marrow makes abnormal myeloblasts (a type of white blood cell), red blood cells, or platelets. When the abnormal cells crowd out the healthy cells, it can lead to infection, anemia, and easy bleeding. The abnormal cells can also spread outside the blood to other parts of the body.

There are several different subtypes of AML. The subtypes are based on how developed the cancer cells are when you get your diagnosis and how different they are from normal cells.

What causes acute myeloid leukemia (AML)?

AML happens when there are changes in the genetic material (DNA) in bone marrow cells. The cause of these genetic changes is unknown. However, there are certain factors that raise your risk of AML.

Who is at risk for acute myeloid leukemia (AML)?

The factors that raise your risk of AML include:

What are the symptoms of acute myeloid leukemia (AML)?

The signs and symptoms of AML include:

How is acute myeloid leukemia (AML) diagnosed?

Your health care provider may use many tools to diagnose AML and figure out which subtype you have:

If you are diagnosed with AML, you may have additional tests to see whether the cancer has spread. These include imaging tests and a lumbar puncture, which is a procedure to collect and test cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

What are the treatments for acute myeloid leukemia (AML)?

Treatments for AML include:

Which treatment you get often depends on which subtype of AML you have. Treatment is usually done in two phases:

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

What is leukemia?

Leukemia is a term for cancers of the blood cells. Leukemia starts in blood-forming tissues such as the bone marrow. Your bone marrow makes the cells which will develop into white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Each type of cell has a different job:

When you have leukemia, your bone marrow makes large numbers of abnormal cells. This problem most often happens with white blood cells. These abnormal cells build up in your bone marrow and blood. They crowd out the healthy blood cells and make it hard for your cells and blood to do their work.

What is chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)?

Chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) is a type of chronic leukemia. "Chronic" means that the leukemia usually gets worse slowly. In CML, the bone marrow makes abnormal granulocytes (a type of white blood cell). These abnormal cells are also called blasts. When the abnormal cells crowd out the healthy cells, it can lead to infection, anemia, and easy bleeding. The abnormal cells can also spread outside the blood to other parts of the body.

CML usually occurs in adults during or after middle age. It is rare in children.

What causes chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)?

Most people with CML have a genetic change called the Philadelphia chromosome. It's called that because researchers in Philadelphia discovered it. People normally have 23 pairs of chromosomes in each cell. These chromosomes contain your DNA (genetic material). In CML, part of the DNA from one chromosome moves to another chromosome. It combines with some DNA there, which creates a new gene called BCR-ABL. This gene causes your bone marrow to make an abnormal protein. This protein allows the leukemia cells to grow out of control.

The Philadelphia chromosome isn't passed from parent to child. It happens during your lifetime. The cause is unknown.

Who is at risk for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)?

It is hard to predict who will get CML. There are a few factors that could raise your risk:

What are the symptoms of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)?

Sometimes CML does not cause symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they can include:

How is chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) diagnosed?

Your health care provider may use many tools to diagnose CML:

If you are diagnosed with CML, you may have additional tests such as imaging tests to see whether the cancer has spread.

What are the phases of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)?

CML has three phases. The phases are based on how much the CML has grown or spread:

What are the treatments for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)?

There are several different treatments for CML:

Which treatments you get will depend on which phase you are in, your age, your overall health, and other factors. When the signs and symptoms of CML are reduced or have disappeared, it is called remission. The CML may come back after remission, and you may need more treatment.
