Unspecified nephritic syndrome with diffuse mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Chronic glomerulonephritis associated with another disorder
- Mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis
- Mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis type III
- Mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis type IV
- Mesangiocapillary glomerulonephritis, type I
- Nephritic syndrome
- Nephritic syndrome co-occurrent and due to membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis type III
- Nephritic Syndrome-. a syndrome characterized by hematuria with dysmorphic red blood cells, red blood cell casts, and proteinuria; systemic manifestations may be present, including hypertension, edema, oliguria.
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries
The following annotation back-references are applicable to this diagnosis code. The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10-CM codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more.
Inclusion TermsInclusion 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.
- Unspecified nephritic syndrome with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis, types 1 and 3, or NOS
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.
Index to Diseases and Injuries References

You have two kidneys, each about the size of your fist. They are near the middle of your back, just below the rib cage. Inside each kidney there are about a million tiny structures called nephrons. They filter your blood. They remove wastes and extra water, which become urine. The urine flows through tubes called ureters. It goes to your bladder, which stores the urine until you go to the bathroom.
Most kidney diseases attack the nephrons. This damage may leave kidneys unable to remove wastes. Causes can include genetic problems, injuries, or medicines. You have a higher risk of kidney disease if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or a close family member with kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease damages the nephrons slowly over several years. Other kidney problems include:
Your doctor can do blood and urine tests to check if you have kidney disease. If your kidneys fail, you will need dialysis or a kidney transplant.
