Clinical Information

  • Cryptogenic Organizing Pneumonia

    an interstitial lung disease of unknown etiology, occurring between 21-80 years of age. it is characterized by a dramatic onset of a "pneumonia-like" illness with cough, fever, malaise, fatigue, and weight loss. pathological features include prominent interstitial inflammation without collagen fibrosis, diffuse fibroblastic foci, and no microscopic honeycomb change. there is excessive proliferation of granulation tissue within small airways and alveolar ducts.

    human abcb11 wild-type allele is located in the vicinity of 2q24 and is approximately 108 kb in length. this allele, which encodes bile salt export pump protein, is involved in bile salt transport. mutation of the gene is associated with hereditary intrahepatic cholestasis.
  • Benign Recurrent Intrahepatic Cholestasis

    reappearance of cholestasis caused by obstruction within the liver by non-cancerous conditions.
  • Intrahepatic Cholestasis

    impairment of the bile flow caused by obstruction within the liver.
  • Progressive Familial Intrahepatic Cholestasis

    a genetic syndrome affecting infants and children. it is characterized by chronic intrahepatic cholestasis usually progressing to cirrhosis within the first ten years of life.
  • Recurrent Intrahepatic Cholestasis

    reappearance of cholestasis caused by obstruction within the liver.

Inclusion Terms

Inclusion 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.
  • Cholestasis with hepatocyte injury
  • 'Pure' cholestasis

Index to Diseases and Injuries References

The following annotation back-references for this diagnosis code are found in the injuries and diseases index. The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10-CM code(s).

Convert K71.0 to ICD-9-CM

  • ICD-9-CM Code: 573.3 - Hepatitis NOS
    Approximate Flag - The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 and ICD-9 codes and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.

Patient Education

Bile Duct Diseases

Your liver makes a digestive juice called bile. Your gallbladder stores it between meals. When you eat, your gallbladder pushes the bile into tubes called bile ducts. They carry the bile to your small intestine. The bile helps break down fat. It also helps the liver get rid of toxins and wastes.

Different diseases can block the bile ducts and cause a problem with the flow of bile:

  • Gallstones, which can increase pressure in the gallbladder and cause a gallbladder attack. The pain usually lasts from one to several hours.
  • Cancer
  • Infections
  • Birth defects, such as biliary atresia. It is the most common reason for liver transplants in children in the United States.
  • Inflammation, which can cause scarring. Over time, this can lead to liver failure.

Liver Diseases

Your liver is the largest organ inside your body. It helps your body digest food, store energy, and remove poisons.

There are many kinds of liver diseases:

  • Diseases caused by viruses, such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C
  • Diseases caused by drugs, poisons, or too much alcohol. Examples include fatty liver disease and cirrhosis.
  • Liver cancer
  • Inherited diseases, such as hemochromatosis and Wilson disease

Symptoms of liver disease can vary, but they often include swelling of the abdomen and legs, bruising easily, changes in the color of your stool and urine, and jaundice, or yellowing of the skin and eyes. Sometimes there are no symptoms. Tests such as imaging tests and liver function tests can check for liver damage and help to diagnose liver diseases.
