Specific Coding for Eosinophilia

Non-specific codes like D72.1 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 eosinophilia:

  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D72.10 for Eosinophilia, unspecified
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - D72.11 for Hypereosinophilic syndrome [HES]
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D72.110 for Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome [IHES]
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D72.111 for Lymphocytic Variant Hypereosinophilic Syndrome [LHES]
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D72.118 for Other hypereosinophilic syndrome
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D72.119 for Hypereosinophilic syndrome [HES], unspecified
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D72.12 for Drug rash with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms syndrome
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D72.18 for Eosinophilia in diseases classified elsewhere
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use D72.19 for Other eosinophilia

Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

Type 2 Excludes
A type 2 excludes note represents "Not included here". An excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate.

Information for Patients

Eosinophilic Disorders

Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell. They help fight off infections and play a role in your body's immune response. They can also build up and cause inflammation.

Normally your blood doesn't have a large number of eosinophils. Your body may produce more of them in response to

In some conditions, the eosinophils can move outside the bloodstream and build up in organs and tissues. This can happen in many different parts of the body, including the esophagus, heart, lungs, blood, and intestines. Treatment of eosinophilic disorders can vary, depending on the cause and which part of the body is affected. Steroids are often part of the treatment.
