- Acute lichenoid pityriasis
- Febrile ulceronecrotic pityriasis lichenoides acuta
- Lymphocytic vasculitis of skin
- Parapsoriasis varioliformis
- Pityriasis lichenoides
- PITYRIASIS LICHENOIDES-. a subgroup of parapsoriasis itself divided into acute and chronic forms. the acute form is characterized by the abrupt onset of a generalized reddish brown maculopapular eruption. lesions may be vesicular hemorrhagic crusted or necrotic. histologically the disease is characterized by epidermal necrolysis. the chronic form shows milder skin changes with necrosis.
Diagnostic Related Groups - MS-DRG Mapping
|MS-DRG||MS-DRG Title||MCD||Relative Weight|
|595||MAJOR SKIN DISORDERS WITH MCC||09||2.0121|
|596||MAJOR SKIN DISORDERS WITHOUT MCC||09||0.9892|
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 L41.0 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code L41.0 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.
