Valid for Submission
J84.89 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other specified interstitial pulmonary diseases. The code J84.89 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code J84.89 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like cholesterol pneumonia, chronic pneumonitis of infancy, endogenous lipoid pneumonia, gip - giant cell interstitial pneumonitis, lipoid pneumonitis , organized pneumonia, etc.
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 guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code J84.89:
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.
- Endogenous lipoid pneumonia
- Interstitial pneumonitis
- Non-specific interstitial pneumonitis NOS
- Organizing pneumonia NOS
Code FirstCode First
Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology. For such conditions, the ICD-10-CM has a coding convention that requires the underlying condition be sequenced first followed by the manifestation. Wherever such a combination exists, there is a "use additional code" note at the etiology code, and a "code first" note at the manifestation code. These instructional notes indicate the proper sequencing order of the codes, etiology followed by manifestation.
Use Additional CodeUse Additional Code
The “use additional code” indicates that a secondary code could be used to further specify the patient’s condition. This note is not mandatory and is only used if enough information is available to assign an additional code.
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.
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code J84.89 are found in the index:
- - Bronchiolitis (acute) (infective) (subacute) - J21.9
- - Disease, diseased - See Also: Syndrome;
- - Pneumonia (acute) (double) (migratory) (purulent) (septic) (unresolved) - J18.9
- - bronchiolitis obliterans organized (BOOP) - J84.89
- - broncho-, bronchial (confluent) (croupous) (diffuse) (disseminated) (hemorrhagic) (involving lobes) (lobar) (terminal) - J18.0
- - cholesterol - J84.89
- - interstitial - J84.9
- - non-specific - J84.89
- - lipid, lipoid (exogenous) - J69.1
- - endogenous - J84.89
- - organizing - J84.89
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Cholesterol pneumonia
- Chronic pneumonitis of infancy
- Endogenous lipoid pneumonia
- GIP - Giant cell interstitial pneumonitis
- Lipoid pneumonitis
- Organized pneumonia
- Primary atypical interstitial pneumonia
- Vinyard sprayers' lung

Convert J84.89 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code J84.89 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
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.
