Valid for Submission
O08.0 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of genital tract and pelvic infection following ectopic and molar pregnancy. The code O08.0 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code O08.0 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like endometritis following molar and/or ectopic pregnancy, fallopian tube infection, genital tract and/or pelvic infection following molar and/or ectopic pregnancy, genital tract infection due to and following ectopic pregnancy, genital tract infection due to and following molar pregnancy , infection of ovary, etc.
The code O08.0 is applicable to female patients aged 12 through 55 years inclusive. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient outside the stated age range.
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 guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code O08.0:
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.
- Endometritis following ectopic and molar pregnancy
- Oophoritis following ectopic and molar pregnancy
- Parametritis following ectopic and molar pregnancy
- Pelvic peritonitis following ectopic and molar pregnancy
- Salpingitis following ectopic and molar pregnancy
- Salpingo-oophoritis following ectopic and molar pregnancy
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.

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:
- Endometritis following molar AND/OR ectopic pregnancy
- Fallopian tube infection
- Genital tract AND/OR pelvic infection following molar AND/OR ectopic pregnancy
- Genital tract infection due to and following ectopic pregnancy
- Genital tract infection due to and following molar pregnancy
- Infection of ovary
- Parametritis following molar AND/OR ectopic pregnancy
- Pelvic infection due to and following ectopic pregnancy
- Pelvic infection due to and following molar pregnancy
- Pelvic peritonitis following molar AND/OR ectopic pregnancy
- Salpingitis due to ectopic pregnancy
- Salpingitis following molar AND/OR ectopic pregnancy
- Salpingo-oophoritis following molar AND/OR ectopic pregnancy
- Tetanus complicating ectopic AND/OR molar pregnancy
Convert O08.0 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code O08.0 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.
Information for Patients
Also called: Abdominal pregnancy, Tubal pregnancy
The uterus, or womb, is the place where a baby grows when a woman is pregnant. If you have an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg grows in the wrong place, outside the uterus, usually in the fallopian tubes. The result is usually a miscarriage.
Ectopic pregnancy can be a medical emergency if it ruptures. Signs of ectopic pregnancy include
- Abdominal pain
- Shoulder pain
- Vaginal bleeding
- Feeling dizzy or faint
Get medical care right away if you have these signs. Doctors use drugs or surgery to remove the ectopic tissue so it doesn't damage your organs. Many women who have had ectopic pregnancies go on to have healthy pregnancies later.

Tumors and Pregnancy
Tumors during pregnancy are rare, but they can happen. Tumors can be either benign or malignant. Benign tumors aren't cancer. Malignant ones are. The most common cancers in pregnancy are breast cancer, cervical cancer, lymphoma, and melanoma. Cancer itself rarely harms the baby, and some cancer treatments are safe during pregnancy. You and your health care provider will work together to find the best treatment. Your options will depend on how far along the pregnancy is, as well as the type, size, and stage of your cancer.
Another type of tumor that women can get is called a gestational trophoblastic disease (GTD). It happens when a fertilized egg doesn't become a fetus. GTD is not always easy to find. It is usually benign, but some types can be malignant. The most common type of GTD is a molar pregnancy. In its early stages, it may look like a normal pregnancy. You should see your health care provider if you have vaginal bleeding (not menstrual bleeding).
Treatment depends on the type of tumor, whether it has spread to other places, and your overall health.
