Valid for Submission
J98.11 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of atelectasis. The code J98.11 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 J98.11 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acute atelectasis, atelectasis, atelectasis and/or obstructive pneumonitis of entire lung associated with direct extension of malignant neoplasm, chronic atelectasis, collapse of lung present , complete atelectasis, 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 coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code J98.11:
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.
- newborn atelectasis
- tuberculous atelectasis current disease A15
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 J98.11 are found in the index:
- - Right middle lobe syndrome - J98.11
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acute atelectasis
- Atelectasis AND/OR obstructive pneumonitis of entire lung associated with direct extension of malignant neoplasm
- Chronic atelectasis
- Collapse of lung present
- Complete atelectasis
- Complete atelectasis of left lung
- Complete atelectasis of right lung
- Compression atelectasis
- Discoid atelectasis
- Focal atelectasis
- Linear atelectasis
- Middle lobe syndrome
- Obstetrical pulmonary complication of anesthesia AND/OR sedation
- Obstructive atelectasis
- Postoperative atelectasis
- Postprocedural respiratory disorders
- Pressure collapse of lung after anesthesia AND/OR sedation in labor AND/OR delivery
- pT3:Tumor directly invades any of following:chest wall,diaphragm,mediastinal pleura,parietal pericardium;or tumor in main bronchus<2 cm distal to carina;or assoc atelectasis or obstructive pneumonitis of whole lung
- Round atelectasis
- T2:Lung tumor with any of these features:>3cm in greatest dimension, involves main bronchus >2cm distal to carina; invades visceral pleura; assoc with atelectasis/obstructive pneumonitis extends to hilar region, does not involve entire lung
- T3: Lung tumor of any size associated atelectasis or obstructive pneumonitis of the entire lung
- Traumatic atelectasis
- PULMONARY ATELECTASIS-. absence of air in the entire or part of a lung such as an incompletely inflated neonate lung or a collapsed adult lung. pulmonary atelectasis can be caused by airway obstruction lung compression fibrotic contraction or other factors.

|206||OTHER RESPIRATORY SYSTEM DIAGNOSES WITHOUT MCC||04||0.8842|
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 J98.11 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code J98.11 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
A collapsed lung happens when air enters the pleural space, the area between the lung and the chest wall. If it is a total collapse, it is called pneumothorax. If only part of the lung is affected, it is called atelectasis.
Causes of a collapsed lung include
- Lung diseases such as pneumonia or lung cancer
- Being on a breathing machine
- Surgery on the chest or abdomen
- A blocked airway
If only a small area of the lung is affected, you may not have symptoms. If a large area is affected, you may feel short of breath and have a rapid heart rate.
A chest x-ray can tell if you have it. Treatment depends on the underlying cause.
