Valid for Submission
K77 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of liver disorders in diseases classified elsewhere. The code K77 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 K77 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like alpha-1-antitrypsin hepatitis, blastomycosis liver, disorder of liver co-occurrent and due to disorder of urea cycle, disorder of liver due to disorder of amino acid metabolism, disorder of liver due to disorder of mineral metabolism , glycogen storage disease, hepatic form, 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 K77:
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.
- underlying disease, such as:
- amyloidosis E85
- congenital syphilis A50.0 A50.5
- congenital toxoplasmosis P37.1
- infectious mononucleosis with liver disease B27.0 B27.9
- schistosomiasis B65.0 B65.9
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.
- alcoholic hepatitis K70.1
- alcoholic liver disease K70
- cytomegaloviral hepatitis B25.1
- herpesviral herpes simplex hepatitis B00.81
- mumps hepatitis B26.81
- sarcoidosis with liver disease D86.89
- secondary syphilis with liver disease A51.45
- syphilis late with liver disease A52.74
- toxoplasmosis acquired hepatitis B58.1
- tuberculosis with liver disease A18.83
The Medicare Code Editor (MCE) detects and reports errors in the coding of claims data. The following ICD-10 Code Edits are applicable to this code:
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Alpha-1-antitrypsin hepatitis
- Blastomycosis liver
- Disorder of liver co-occurrent and due to disorder of urea cycle
- Disorder of liver due to disorder of amino acid metabolism
- Disorder of liver due to disorder of mineral metabolism
- Glycogen storage disease, hepatic form
- Hepatic amyloidosis
- Histoplasmosis liver
- Infection of liver caused by parasite
- Liver disease co-occurrent and due to mitochondrial disorder
- Sickle cell hepatopathy

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 K77 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code K77 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
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.
