L95.0 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of livedoid vasculitis. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Congenital livedo reticularis
- Idiopathic livedo reticularis
- Idiopathic livedo reticularis with summer ulceration
- Livedo reticularis
- Livedo reticularis
- Livedoid vasculopathy of lower limb due to varicose veins of lower limb
- Livedo Reticularis-. a condition characterized by a reticular or fishnet pattern on the skin of lower extremities and other parts of the body. this red and blue pattern is due to deoxygenated blood in unstable dermal blood vessels. the condition is intensified by cold exposure and relieved by rewarming.
- Sneddon Syndrome-. a systemic non-inflammatory arteriopathy primarily of middle-aged females characterized by the association of livedo reticularis, multiple thrombotic cerebral infarction; coronary disease, and hypertension. elevation of antiphospholipid antibody titers (see also antiphospholipid syndrome), cardiac valvulopathy, ischemic attack, transient; seizures; dementia; and chronic ischemia of the extremities may also occur. pathologic examination of affected arteries reveals non-inflammatory adventitial fibrosis, thrombosis, and changes in the media. (from jablonski, dictionary of syndromes & eponymic diseases, 2d ed; adams et al., principles of neurology, 6th ed, p861; arch neurol 1997 jan;54(1):53-60)
- Livedo Reticularis-. a recurrent purple discoloration of the skin that does not blanche and is found in a lacy, network pattern, most often in the lower extremities. it may be aggravated by exposure to cold and is classified as idiopathic or secondary. secondary livedo reticularis may be a cutaneous manifestation of immune system disorders (e.g., lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, cryoglobulinemia, lymphoma, etc), and hematologic disorders (polycythemia vera).

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.

Vasculitis is an inflammation of the blood vessels. It happens when the body's immune system attacks the blood vessel by mistake. It can happen because of an infection, a medicine, or another disease. The cause is often unknown.
Vasculitis can affect arteries, veins and capillaries. Arteries are vessels that carry blood from the heart to the body's organs. Veins are the vessels that carry blood back to the heart. Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that connect the small arteries and veins.
When a blood vessel becomes inflamed, it can:
- Narrow, making it more difficult for blood to get through
- Close off completely so that blood can't get through
- Stretch and weaken so much that it bulges. The bulge is called an aneurysm. If it bursts, it can cause dangerous bleeding inside the body.
Symptoms of vasculitis can vary, but usually include fever, swelling and a general sense of feeling ill. The main goal of treatment is to stop the inflammation. Steroids and other medicines to stop inflammation are often helpful.
