D64.3 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other sideroblastic anemias. 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:
- Autosomal-linked pyridoxine refractory sideroblastic anemia
- Idiopathic sideroblastic anemia
- Pyridoxine-responsive sideroblastic anemia
- Secondary acquired sideroblastic anemia
- Sideroblastic anemia
- X chromosome-linked pyridoxine responsive sideroblastic anemia
- X chromosome-linked sideroblastic anemia
- Hereditary Sideroblastic Anemia-. an inherited form of sideroblastic anemia.
- Myelodysplastic Syndrome with Ring Sideroblasts|MDS-RS|Pure Sideroblastic Anemia|RARS|RARS|Refractory Anemia with Ring Sideroblasts|Refractory Anemia with Ringed Sideroblasts|Refractory anemia with ringed sideroblasts-. a myelodysplastic syndrome characterized by an anemia in which 15% or more of the erythroid precursors are ring sideroblasts. the ring sideroblast is an erythroid precursor in which one third or more of the nucleus is encircled by granules which are positive for iron stain. (who, 2001)
- Sideroblastic Anemia-. anemia characterized by the production of ringed sideroblasts instead of healthy red blood cells.
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:
Inclusion TermsInclusion 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.
- Sideroblastic anemia NOS
- Pyridoxine-responsive sideroblastic anemia NEC
Index to Diseases and Injuries References
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for this diagnosis code are found in the injuries and diseases index:
- - Anemia (essential) (general) (hemoglobin deficiency) (infantile) (primary) (profound) - D64.9

If you have anemia, your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body. The most common cause of anemia is not having enough iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that gives the red color to blood. It carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
Anemia has three main causes: blood loss, lack of red blood cell production, and high rates of red blood cell destruction.
Conditions that may lead to anemia include:
- Heavy periods
- Colon polyps or colon cancer
- Inherited disorders
- A diet that does not have enough iron, folic acid or vitamin B12
- Blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, or cancer
- Aplastic anemia, a condition that can be inherited or acquired
- G6PD deficiency, a metabolic disorder
Anemia can make you feel tired, cold, dizzy, and irritable. You may be short of breath or have a headache.
Your doctor will diagnose anemia with a physical exam and blood tests. Treatment depends on the kind of anemia you have.
