Valid for Submission
H05.029 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of osteomyelitis of unspecified orbit. The code H05.029 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code H05.029 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acute osteomyelitis of cranium, acute osteomyelitis of nasal-orbit complex, chronic osteomyelitis of cranium, chronic osteomyelitis of nasal-orbit complex, chronic sclerosing nonsuppurative osteomyelitis , chronic sclerosing nonsuppurative osteomyelitis of nasal-orbit complex, etc.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like H05.029 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:
- Acute osteomyelitis of cranium
- Acute osteomyelitis of nasal-orbit complex
- Chronic osteomyelitis of cranium
- Chronic osteomyelitis of nasal-orbit complex
- Chronic sclerosing nonsuppurative osteomyelitis
- Chronic sclerosing nonsuppurative osteomyelitis of nasal-orbit complex
- Orbital osteomyelitis
- Osteomyelitis of nasal-orbit complex
Diagnostic Related Groups - MS-DRG Mapping
|MS-DRG||MS-DRG Title||MCD||Relative Weight|
|121||ACUTE MAJOR EYE INFECTIONS WITH CC/MCC||02||1.1887|
|122||ACUTE MAJOR EYE INFECTIONS WITHOUT CC/MCC||02||0.6438|
The relative weight of a diagnostic related group determines the reimbursement rate based on the severity of a patient's illness and the associated cost of care during hospitalization.
Convert H05.029 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code H05.029 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Like other parts of the body, bones can get infected. The infections are usually bacterial, but can also be fungal. They may spread to the bone from nearby skin or muscles, or from another part of the body through the bloodstream. People who are at risk for bone infections include those with diabetes, poor circulation, or recent injury to the bone. You may also be at risk if you are having hemodialysis.
Symptoms of bone infections include
- Pain in the infected area
- Chills and fever
- Swelling, warmth, and redness
A blood test or imaging test such as an x-ray can tell if you have a bone infection. Treatment includes antibiotics and often surgery.

Some eye problems are minor and don't last long. But some can lead to a permanent loss of vision.
Common eye problems include
- Refractive errors
- Cataracts - clouded lenses
- Optic nerve disorders, including glaucoma
- Retinal disorders - problems with the nerve layer at the back of the eye
- Macular degeneration - a disease that destroys sharp, central vision
- Diabetic eye problems
- Conjunctivitis - an infection also known as pink eye
Your best defense is to have regular checkups, because eye diseases do not always have symptoms. Early detection and treatment could prevent vision loss. See an eye care professional right away if you have a sudden change in vision, if everything looks dim, or if you see flashes of light. Other symptoms that need quick attention are pain, double vision, fluid coming from the eye, and inflammation.
