ICD-10-CM Code D48.5

Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of skin

Version 2020 Billable Code Neoplasm Uncertain Behavior

Valid for Submission

D48.5 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of skin. The code is valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code D48.5 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like aggressive fibromatosis, angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma of skin, apudoma, apudoma of skin, atypical fibrous histiocytoma of soft tissue, atypical fibroxanthoma of skin, etc

The following anatomical sites found in the Table of Neoplasms apply to this code given the correct histological behavior: abdomen, abdominal wall [See Also: Neoplasm, abdomen, wall, skin] ; ala nasi (external) [See Also: Neoplasm, skin, nose] ; anus, anal margin [See Also: Neoplasm, anus, skin] ; anus, anal skin ; auditory ; auditory canal (external) (skin) ; auricle, ear [See Also: Neoplasm, skin, ear] ; etc

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 guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code D48.5:

Inclusion Terms

Inclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of anal margin
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of anal skin
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of perianal skin
  • Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of skin of breast

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.
  • neoplasm of uncertain behavior of anus NOS D37.8
  • neoplasm of uncertain behavior of skin of genital organs D39.8 D40.8
  • neoplasm of uncertain behavior of vermilion border of lip D37.0

Diagnostic Related Groups

The ICD-10 code D48.5 is grouped in the following groups for version MS-DRG V37.0 What are Diagnostic Related Groups?
The Diagnostic Related Groups (DRGs) are a patient classification scheme which provides a means of relating the type of patients a hospital treats. The DRGs divides all possible principal diagnoses into mutually exclusive principal diagnosis areas referred to as Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC).
applicable from 10/01/2020 through 09/30/2020.

Table of Neoplasms

The code D48.5 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


Skin Conditions

Your skin is your body's largest organ. It covers and protects your body. Your skin

  • Holds body fluids in, preventing dehydration
  • Keeps harmful microbes out, preventing infections
  • Helps you feel things like heat, cold, and pain
  • Keeps your body temperature even
  • Makes vitamin D when the sun shines on it

Anything that irritates, clogs, or inflames your skin can cause symptoms such as redness, swelling, burning, and itching. Allergies, irritants, your genetic makeup, and certain diseases and immune system problems can cause rashes, hives, and other skin conditions. Many skin problems, such as acne, also affect your appearance.
