D70.9 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of neutropenia, unspecified. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like D70.9 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acquired eosinopenia
- Acquired neutropenia
- Adult chronic idiopathic neutropenia
- Agranulocytosis co-occurrent with human immunodeficiency virus infection
- Agranulocytosis with AIDS
- Benign granulocytopenia in childhood
- Chronic benign granulocytopenia
- Chronic idiopathic neutropenia
- Constitutional eosinopenia
- Decreased blood eosinophil number
- Granulocytopenic disorder
- Immune neutropenia
- Myelodysplastic syndrome with single lineage dysplasia
- Neutropenia associated with infectious disease
- Neutropenia with AIDS
- Neutropenic disorder
- Periodontitis exacerbated by acquired neutropenia
- Periodontitis exacerbated by chronic familial neutropenia
- Periodontitis exacerbated by familial neutropenia
- Poikiloderma with neutropenia
- Refractory neutropenia
- Chemotherapy-Induced Febrile Neutropenia-. fever accompanied by a significant reduction in neutrophil count associated with chemotherapy.
- Febrile Neutropenia-. fever accompanied by a significant reduction in the number of neutrophils.
- Neutropenia-. a decrease in the number of neutrophils found in the blood.
- Agranulocytosis-. a decrease in the number of granulocytes; (basophils; eosinophils; and neutrophils).
- Feline Panleukopenia-. a highly contagious dna virus infection of the cat family, characterized by fever, enteritis and bone marrow changes. it is also called feline ataxia, feline agranulocytosis, feline infectious enteritis, cat fever, cat plague, and show fever. it is caused by feline panleukopenia virus or the closely related mink enteritis virus or canine parvovirus.
- Neutrophils-. granular leukocytes having a nucleus with three to five lobes connected by slender threads of chromatin, and cytoplasm containing fine inconspicuous granules and stainable by neutral dyes.
- Agranulocytosis-. a marked decrease in the number of mature granulocytes (most often neutrophils) in the peripheral blood.
- Chemotherapy Related Agranulocytosis|Chemotherapy-Related Agranulocytosis-. agranulocytosis that occurs with chemotherapy.
- Congenital Neutropenia|congenital neutropenia|genetic infantile agranulocytosis|infantile genetic agranulocytosis-. a rare congenital disorder characterized by mild or severe reduction of neutrophils in the peripheral blood and recurrent infantile infections.
- Cyclic Neutropenia|CH|CN|Cyclic Agranulocytosis|Cyclic Hematopoiesis|Cyclic Hematopoiesis|Dysplasia, Myelocytic Periodic|Periodic Neutropenia|cyclic neutropenia|periodic neutropenia-. a hematologic disorder caused by a mutation in the elane (ela2) gene; clinical manifestations include recurrent neutropenia with resultant susceptibility to infection leading to fever.

Your blood is living tissue made up of liquid and solids. The liquid part, called plasma, is made of water, salts and protein. Over half of your blood is plasma. The solid part of your blood contains red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
Blood disorders affect one or more parts of the blood and prevent your blood from doing its job. They can be acute or chronic. Many blood disorders are inherited. Other causes include other diseases, side effects of medicines, and a lack of certain nutrients in your diet.
Types of blood disorders include:
- Platelet disorders, excessive clotting, and bleeding problems, which affect how your blood clots
- Anemia, which happens when your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body
- Cancers of the blood, such as leukemia and myeloma
- Eosinophilic disorders, which are problems with one type of white blood cell.
