2021 ICD-10-CM Code D37.2

Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of small intestine

Version 2021

Valid for Submission

D37.2 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of small intestine. The code D37.2 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

The ICD-10-CM code D37.2 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like carcinoid tumor of ileum, carcinoid tumor of small intestine, neoplasm of meckel's diverticulum, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of duodenum, neoplasm of uncertain behavior of ileum , neoplasm of uncertain behavior of jejunum, etc.

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: Neoplasm, neoplastic duodenojejunal junction ; Neoplasm, neoplastic duodenum ; Neoplasm, neoplastic ileum ; Neoplasm, neoplastic intestine, intestinal small ; Neoplasm, neoplastic intestine, intestinal small duodenum ; Neoplasm, neoplastic intestine, intestinal small ileum ; Neoplasm, neoplastic intestine, intestinal small jejunum ; etc

The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code D37.2 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 D37.2 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


Small Intestine Disorders

Your small intestine is the longest part of your digestive system - about twenty feet long! It connects your stomach to your large intestine (or colon) and folds many times to fit inside your abdomen. Your small intestine does most of the digesting of the foods you eat. It has three areas called the duodenum, the ileum, and the jejunum.

Problems with the small intestine can include:

Treatment of disorders of the small intestine depends on the cause.
