D72.10 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of eosinophilia, 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 D72.10 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 eosinophilia
- Allergic eosinophilia
- Disorder characterized by eosinophilia
- Drug-induced eosinophilia
- Eosinophil count raised
- Idiopathic eosinophilia
- Secondary eosinophilia
- Eosinophilia-. abnormal increase of eosinophils in the blood, tissues or organs.
- Eosinophilia-Myalgia Syndrome-. a complex systemic syndrome with inflammatory and autoimmune components that affect the skin, fascia, muscle, nerve, blood vessels, lung, and heart. diagnostic features generally include eosinophilia, myalgia severe enough to limit usual activities of daily living, and the absence of coexisting infectious, autoimmune or other conditions that may induce eosinophilia. biopsy of affected tissue reveals a microangiopathy associated with diffuse inflammation involving connective tissue. (from spitzer et al., j rheumatol suppl 1996 oct;46:73-9; blackburn wd, semin arthritis rheum 1997 jun;26(6):788-93)
- Pulmonary Eosinophilia-. a condition characterized by infiltration of the lung with eosinophils due to inflammation or other disease processes. major eosinophilic lung diseases are the eosinophilic pneumonias caused by infections, allergens, or toxic agents.
- Eosinophils-. granular leukocytes with a nucleus that usually has two lobes connected by a slender thread of chromatin, and cytoplasm containing coarse, round granules that are uniform in size and stainable by eosin.

D7210 replaces the following previously assigned ICD-10 code(s):
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:
- Allergic disorders
- Skin conditions
- Parasitic and fungal infections
- Autoimmune diseases
- Some cancers
- Bone marrow disorders
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.
