- Rhinitis-. inflammation of the nasal mucosa, the mucous membrane lining the nasal cavities.
- Rhinitis, Allergic-. an inflammation of the nasal mucosa triggered by allergens.
- Rhinitis, Allergic, Perennial-. inflammation of the mucous membrane of the nose similar to that found in hay fever except that symptoms persist throughout the year. the causes are usually air-borne allergens, particularly dusts, feathers, molds, animal fur, etc.
- Rhinitis, Allergic, Seasonal-. allergic rhinitis that occurs at the same time every year. it is characterized by acute conjunctivitis with lacrimation and itching, and regarded as an allergic condition triggered by specific allergens.
- Rhinitis, Atrophic-. a chronic inflammation in which the nasal mucosa gradually changes from a functional to a non-functional lining without mucociliary clearance. it is often accompanied by degradation of the bony turbinates, and the foul-smelling mucus which forms a greenish crust (ozena).
- Rhinitis, Vasomotor-. a form of non-allergic rhinitis that is characterized by nasal congestion and posterior pharyngeal drainage.
- Chronic Rhinitis-. chronic inflammation of the nasal cavity mucosa. it may lead to post-nasal drip resulting in chronic sore throat and chronic cough.
- Chronic Laryngitis-. persistent laryngitis usually caused by smoking, heavy alcohol consumption, voice abuse, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. it results in hoarseness and other voice changes.
- Allergic Rhinitis, CTCAE|Allergic Rhinitis|Allergic rhinitis-. a disorder characterized by an inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes caused by an ige-mediated response to external allergens. the inflammation may also involve the mucous membranes of the sinuses, eyes, middle ear, and pharynx. symptoms include sneezing, nasal congestion, rhinorrhea and itching.
- Allergic Rhinitis|Allergic rhinitis-. inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes caused by an ige-mediated response to external allergens. the inflammation may also involve the mucous membranes of the sinuses, eyes, middle ear, and pharynx. symptoms include sneezing, nasal congestion, rhinorrhea, and itching. it may lead to fatigue, drowsiness, and malaise thus causing impairment of the quality of life.
- Atopic Rhinitis-. allergic rhinitis with a positive skin prick test (spt equal or greater than 3 mm) to any allergen.
- Grade 1 Allergic Rhinitis, CTCAE|Grade 1 Allergic rhinitis-. mild symptoms; intervention not indicated
- Grade 2 Allergic Rhinitis, CTCAE|Grade 2 Allergic rhinitis-. moderate symptoms; medical intervention indicated
- Grade 2 Rhinitis Infective, CTCAE|Grade 2 Rhinitis infective-. localized; local intervention indicated
- IL13 wt Allele|ALRH|Allergic Rhinitis Gene|BHR1|Bronchial Hyperresponsiveness-1 (Bronchial Asthma) Gene|IL-13 Gene|Interleukin 13 Precursor Gene|Interleukin 13 wt Allele|MGC116786|MGC116788|MGC116789|NC30 Gene|P600-. human il13 wild-type allele is located in the vicinity of 5q31 and is approximately 3 kb in length. this allele, which encodes interleukin-13 protein, is involved in both the regulation of immune responses and the modulation of b-cell maturation and differentiation. the gene plays a role in the regulation of immunoglobulin e class switching.
- Infectious Rhinitis|Non-Allergic Rhinitis|Rhinitis infective-. an inflammatory process affecting the nasal mucosa, usually caused by viruses (e.g., rhinovirus, adenovirus, parainfluenza virus, and coronavirus). it is characterized by chills, headaches, mucopurulent nasal discharge, coughing, and facial pain.
- Perennial Allergic Rhinitis|Non-seasonal Allergic Rhinitis-. allergic rhinitis caused by indoor allergens and lasting year round.
- Rhinitis-. an inflammation of the mucous membrane lining the nose, usually associated with nasal discharge.
- Rhinitis Infective, CTCAE|Rhinitis Infective|Rhinitis infective-. a disorder characterized by an infectious process involving the nasal mucosal.
- Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis|Hay Fever|Hay Fever-. allergic rhinitis caused by outdoor allergens.
- Vasomotor Rhinitis-. inflammation in the nasal cavity mucosa that results from the abnormal regulation of the blood flow in the nose. it may be caused by temperature fluctuations, air pollution, strong odors, and tobacco smoke. it results in chronic nasal congestion, sneezing, and running nose.
- Rhinosinusitis-. inflammation of the mucous membranes lining the nose and paranasal sinuses.
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.
- Atrophic rhinitis (chronic)
- Granulomatous rhinitis (chronic)
- Hypertrophic rhinitis (chronic)
- Obstructive rhinitis (chronic)
- Purulent rhinitis (chronic)
- Rhinitis (chronic) NOS
- Ulcerative rhinitis (chronic)
Type 1 ExcludesType 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Nose Injuries and Disorders
Your nose is important to your health. It filters the air you breathe, removing dust, germs, and irritants. It warms and moistens the air to keep your lungs and tubes that lead to them from drying out. Your nose also contains the nerve cells that help your sense of smell. When there is a problem with your nose, your whole body can suffer. For example, the stuffy nose of the common cold can make it hard for you to breathe, sleep, or get comfortable.
Many problems besides the common cold can affect the nose. They include:
- Deviated septum - a shifting of the wall that divides the nasal cavity into halves
- Nasal polyps - soft growths that develop on the lining of your nose or sinuses
- Rhinitis - inflammation of the nose and sinuses sometimes caused by allergies. The main symptom is a runny nose.
- Nasal fractures, also known as a broken nose
