J65 - Pneumoconiosis associated with tuberculosis
|Short Description:||Pneumoconiosis associated with tuberculosis|
|Long Description:||Pneumoconiosis associated with tuberculosis|
|Status:||Valid for Submission|
J65 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of pneumoconiosis associated with tuberculosis. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Pneumoconiosis associated with tuberculosis
- Silicotuberculosis-. pulmonary or extrapulmonary infection caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis or nontuberculous mycobacteria in a patient with silicosis.
- Mycobacterium tuberculosis-. a species of gram-positive, aerobic bacteria that produces tuberculosis in humans, other primates, cattle; dogs; and some other animals which have contact with humans. growth tends to be in serpentine, cordlike masses in which the bacilli show a parallel orientation.
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:

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.

Interstitial Lung Diseases
Interstitial lung disease is the name for a large group of diseases that inflame or scar the lungs. The inflammation and scarring make it hard to get enough oxygen. The scarring is called pulmonary fibrosis.
Breathing in dust or other particles in the air is responsible for some types of interstitial lung diseases. Specific types include:
- Black lung disease among coal miners, from inhaling coal dust
- Farmer's lung, from inhaling farm dust
- Asbestosis, from inhaling asbestos fibers
- Siderosis, from inhaling iron from mines or welding fumes
- Silicosis, from inhaling silica dust
Other causes include autoimmune diseases or occupational exposures to molds, gases, or fumes. Some types of interstitial lung disease have no known cause.
Treatment depends on the type of exposure and the stage of the disease. It may involve medicines, oxygen therapy, or a lung transplant in severe cases.
