O26.619 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of liver and biliary tract disorders in pregnancy, unspecified trimester. 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 code O26.619 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.
The code is commonly used in ob/gyn medical specialties to specify clinical concepts such as maternal disorders related to pregnancy.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like O26.619 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.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acute fatty liver of pregnancy
- Cholestasis of pregnancy
- Liver disorder in pregnancy
- Liver disorder in pregnancy - delivered
- Liver disorder in pregnancy - not delivered
- Necrosis of liver of pregnancy
- Alagille Syndrome-. a multisystem disorder that is characterized by aplasia of intrahepatic bile ducts (bile ducts, intrahepatic), and malformations in the cardiovascular system, the eyes, the vertebral column, and the facies. major clinical features include jaundice, and congenital heart disease with peripheral pulmonary stenosis. alagille syndrome may result from heterogeneous gene mutations, including mutations in jag1 on chromosome 20 (type 1) and notch2 on chromosome 1 (type 2).
- Cholestasis-. impairment of bile flow due to obstruction in small bile ducts (intrahepatic cholestasis) or obstruction in large bile ducts (extrahepatic cholestasis).
- Cholestasis, Extrahepatic-. impairment of bile flow in the large bile ducts by mechanical obstruction or stricture due to benign or malignant processes.
- Cholestasis, Intrahepatic-. impairment of bile flow due to injury to the hepatocytes; bile canaliculi; or the intrahepatic bile ducts (bile ducts, intrahepatic).
- Bile Ducts-. the channels that collect and transport the bile secretion from the bile canaliculi, the smallest branch of the biliary tract in the liver, through the bile ductules, the bile ducts out the liver, and to the gallbladder for storage.

Health Problems in Pregnancy
Every pregnancy has some risk of problems. You may have problems because of a health condition you had before you got pregnant. You could also develop a condition during pregnancy. Other causes of problems during pregnancy can include being pregnant with more than one baby, a health problem in a previous pregnancy, drug use during pregnancy, or being over age 35. Any of these can affect your health, the health of your baby, or both.
If you have a chronic condition, you should talk to your health care provider about how to minimize your risk before you get pregnant. Once you are pregnant, you may need a health care team to monitor your pregnancy. Some common health problems that can complicate a pregnancy include:
- High blood pressure
- Polycystic ovary syndrome
- Kidney problems
- Autoimmune disorders
Other conditions that can make pregnancy risky can happen while you are pregnant - for example, gestational diabetes and Rh incompatibility. Good prenatal care can help detect and treat them.
Some discomforts, like nausea, back pain, and fatigue, are common during pregnancy. Sometimes it is hard to know what is normal. Call your health care provider if something is bothering or worrying you.

Your liver is the largest organ inside your body. It helps your body digest food, store energy, and remove poisons.
There are many kinds of liver diseases:
- Diseases caused by viruses, such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C
- Diseases caused by drugs, poisons, or too much alcohol. Examples include fatty liver disease and cirrhosis.
- Liver cancer
- Inherited diseases, such as hemochromatosis and Wilson disease
Symptoms of liver disease can vary, but they often include swelling of the abdomen and legs, bruising easily, changes in the color of your stool and urine, and jaundice, or yellowing of the skin and eyes. Sometimes there are no symptoms. Tests such as imaging tests and liver function tests can check for liver damage and help to diagnose liver diseases.
