Valid for Submission
L30.9 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of dermatitis, unspecified. The code L30.9 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 L30.9 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acute constitutional hand eczema, acute dermatitis, acute eczema, acute hand eczema, acute podopompholyx , acute vesicular eczema of foot, etc.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like L30.9 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
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 L30.9:

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.

- CHROMOBLASTOMYCOSIS-. scaly papule or warty growth caused by five fungi that spreads as a result of satellite lesions affecting the foot or leg. the extremity may become swollen and at its distal portion covered with various nodular tumorous verrucous lesions that resemble cauliflower. in rare instances the disease may begin on the hand or wrist and involve the entire upper extremity. arnold odom and james andrew's diseases of the skin 8th ed p362
- DERMATITIS-. any inflammation of the skin.
- DERMATITIS EXFOLIATIVE-. the widespread involvement of the skin by a scaly erythematous dermatitis occurring either as a secondary or reactive process to an underlying cutaneous disorder e.g. atopic dermatitis psoriasis etc. or as a primary or idiopathic disease. it is often associated with the loss of hair and nails hyperkeratosis of the palms and soles and pruritus. from dorland 27th ed
- DERMATITIS HERPETIFORMIS-. rare chronic papulo vesicular disease characterized by an intensely pruritic eruption consisting of various combinations of symmetrical erythematous papular vesicular or bullous lesions. the disease is strongly associated with the presence of hla b8 and hla dr3 antigens. a variety of different autoantibodies has been detected in small numbers in patients with dermatitis herpetiformis.
- DRUG ERUPTIONS-. adverse cutaneous reactions caused by ingestion parenteral use or local application of a drug. these may assume various morphologic patterns and produce various types of lesions.

- DERMATITIS OCCUPATIONAL-. a recurrent contact dermatitis caused by substances found in the work place.
- PHOTOSENSITIVITY DISORDERS-. abnormal responses to sunlight or artificial light due to extreme reactivity of light absorbing molecules in tissues. it refers almost exclusively to skin photosensitivity including sunburn reactions due to repeated prolonged exposure in the absence of photosensitizing factors and reactions requiring photosensitizing factors such as photosensitizing agents and certain diseases. with restricted reference to skin tissue it does not include photosensitivity of the eye to light as in photophobia or photosensitive epilepsy.
- DERMATITIS TOXICODENDRON-. an allergic contact dermatitis caused by exposure to plants of the genus toxicodendron formerly rhus. these include poison ivy poison oak and poison sumac all plants that contain the substance urushiol a potent skin sensitizing agent. from dorland 27th ed

- DERMATITIS SEBORRHEIC-. a chronic inflammatory disease of the skin with unknown etiology. it is characterized by moderate erythema dry moist or greasy sebaceous gland scaling and yellow crusted patches on various areas especially the scalp that exfoliate as dandruff. seborrheic dermatitis is common in children and adolescents with hiv infections.
- DERMATITIS ALLERGIC CONTACT-. a contact dermatitis due to allergic sensitization to various substances. these substances subsequently produce inflammatory reactions in the skin of those who have acquired hypersensitivity to them as a result of prior exposure.
- DERMATITIS IRRITANT-. a non allergic contact dermatitis caused by prolonged exposure to irritants and not explained by delayed hypersensitivity mechanisms.
- DERMATITIS PHOTOALLERGIC-. a delayed hypersensitivity involving the reaction between sunlight or other radiant energy source and a chemical substance to which the individual has been previously exposed and sensitized. it manifests as a papulovesicular eczematous or exudative dermatitis occurring chiefly on the light exposed areas of the skin.
- DERMATITIS PHOTOTOXIC-. a nonimmunologic chemically induced type of photosensitivity producing a sometimes vesiculating dermatitis. it results in hyperpigmentation and desquamation of the light exposed areas of the skin.

Convert L30.9 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code L30.9 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
Eczema is a term for several different types of skin swelling. Eczema is also called dermatitis. Most types cause dry, itchy skin and rashes on the face, inside the elbows and behind the knees, and on the hands and feet. Scratching the skin can cause it to turn red, and to swell and itch even more.
Eczema is not contagious. The cause of eczema is unknown. It is likely caused by both genetic and environmental factors. Eczema may get better or worse over time, but it is often a long-lasting disease. People who have it may also develop hay fever and asthma.
The most common type of eczema is atopic dermatitis. It is most common in babies and children, but adults can have it too. As children who have atopic dermatitis grow older, this problem may get better or go away. But sometimes the skin may stay dry and get irritated easily.
Treatments may include medicines, skin creams, light therapy, and good skin care. You can prevent some types of eczema by avoiding
- Things that irritate your skin, such as certain soaps, fabrics, and lotions
- Things you are allergic to, such as food, pollen, and animals

A rash is an area of irritated or swollen skin. Many rashes are itchy, red, painful, and irritated. Some rashes can also lead to blisters or patches of raw skin. Rashes are a symptom of many different medical problems. Other causes include irritating substances and allergies. Certain genes can make people more likely to get rashes.
Contact dermatitis is a common type of rash. It causes redness, itching, and sometimes small bumps. You get the rash where you have touched an irritant, such as a chemical, or something you are allergic to, like poison ivy.
Some rashes develop right away. Others form over several days. Although most rashes clear up fairly quickly, others are long-lasting and need long-term treatment.
Because rashes can be caused by many different things, it's important to figure out what kind you have before you treat it. If it is a bad rash, if it does not go away, or if you have other symptoms, you should see your health care provider. Treatments may include moisturizers, lotions, baths, cortisone creams that relieve swelling, and antihistamines, which relieve itching.
