2024 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code J47.0
Bronchiectasis with acute lower respiratory infection
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acute bronchitis co-occurrent with bronchiectasis
- Bronchiectasis-. persistent abnormal dilatation of the bronchi.
- Kartagener Syndrome-. an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a triad of dextrocardia; infertility; and sinusitis. the syndrome is caused by mutations of dynein genes encoding motility proteins which are components of sperm tails, and cilia in the respiratory and the reproductive tracts.
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries
The following annotation back-references are applicable to this diagnosis code. The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10-CM codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more.
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.
- Bronchiectasis with acute bronchitis

A "code also" note instructs that two codes may be required to fully describe a condition, but this note does not provide sequencing direction.

When you breathe in, the air travels down through your trachea (windpipe). It then goes through two tubes to your lungs. These tubes are your bronchi. Bronchial disorders can make it hard for you to breathe.
The most common problem with the bronchi is bronchitis, an inflammation of the tubes. It can be acute or chronic. Other problems include:
- Bronchiectasis - a condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred
- Exercise-induced bronchospasm - a breathing problem that happens when your airways shrink while you are exercising
- Bronchiolitis - an inflammation of the small airways that branch off from the bronchi
- Bronchopulmonary dysplasia - a chronic lung condition in infants, most often premature infants
