    resorption or wasting of the tooth-supporting bone (alveolar process) in the maxilla or mandible.
  • Angiomatosis

    a condition with multiple tumor-like lesions caused either by congenital or developmental malformations of blood vessels, or reactive vascular proliferations, such as in bacillary angiomatosis. angiomatosis is considered non-neoplastic.
  • Angiomatosis, Bacillary

    a reactive vascular proliferation that is characterized by the multiple tumor-like lesions in skin, bone, brain, and other organs. bacillary angiomatosis is caused by infection with gram-negative bartonella bacilli (such as bartonella henselae), and is often seen in aids patients and other immunocompromised hosts.
  • Sturge-Weber Syndrome

    a non-inherited congenital condition with vascular and neurological abnormalities. it is characterized by facial vascular nevi (port-wine stain), and capillary angiomatosis of intracranial membranes (meninges; choroid). neurological features include epilepsy; cognitive deficits; glaucoma; and visual defects.
  • von Hippel-Lindau Disease

    an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in a tumor suppressor gene. this syndrome is characterized by abnormal growth of small blood vessels leading to a host of neoplasms. they include hemangioblastoma in the retina; cerebellum; and spinal cord; pheochromocytoma; pancreatic tumors; and renal cell carcinoma (see carcinoma, renal cell). common clinical signs include hypertension and neurological dysfunctions.
  • Focal Dermal Hypoplasia

    a genetic skin disease characterized by hypoplasia of the dermis, herniations of fat, and hand anomalies. it is found exclusively in females and transmitted as an x-linked dominant trait.
  • 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.
  • Livedoid Vasculopathy

    a rare cutaneous thrombotic disease due to occlusion of dermal vessels. it is characterized by purpuric maculae and ulcerations especially during summer which form scars called atrophie blanche. it is more associated with other syndromes (e.g., protein c deficiency; hyperhomocysteinemia). livedo reticularis with systemic involvement and stroke is sneddon syndrome.
  • 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)
  • Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum

    an inherited disorder of connective tissue with extensive degeneration and calcification of elastic tissue primarily in the skin, eye, and vasculature. at least two forms exist, autosomal recessive and autosomal dominant. this disorder is caused by mutations of one of the atp-binding cassette transporters. patients are predisposed to myocardial infarction and gastrointestinal hemorrhage.

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 Terms

Inclusion 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.
  • Abnormal palmar creases
  • Accessory skin tags
  • Benign familial pemphigus Hailey-Hailey
  • Congenital poikiloderma
  • Cutis laxa (hyperelastica)
  • Dermatoglyphic anomalies
  • Inherited keratosis palmaris et plantaris
  • Keratosis follicularis Darier-White

Type 1 Excludes

Type 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.
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndromes Q79.6

Index to Diseases and Injuries References

The following annotation back-references for this diagnosis code are found in the injuries and diseases index. The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10-CM code(s).

Present on Admission (POA)

Q82.8 is exempt from POA reporting - The Present on Admission (POA) indicator is used for diagnosis codes included in claims involving inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals. POA indicators must be reported to CMS on each claim to facilitate the grouping of diagnoses codes into the proper Diagnostic Related Groups (DRG). CMS publishes a listing of specific diagnosis codes that are exempt from the POA reporting requirement. Review other POA exempt codes here.

CMS POA Indicator Options and Definitions

Skin Conditions

What does your skin do?

Your skin is your body's largest organ. It covers the entire outside of your body. There are many ways that your skin protects your body and helps keep you healthy. For example, it:

  • Holds body fluids in, which helps prevent you from getting dehydrated
  • Keeps out harmful germs, which helps prevent infections
  • Helps you feel things like heat, cold, and pain
  • Helps control your body temperature
  • Makes vitamin D when the sun shines on it
  • Shields your body against heat and light

What problems and conditions can affect your skin?

There are many different problems and conditions which can affect your skin. Some of them can cause uncomfortable symptoms, such as itching, burning, redness, and rashes. They might also affect your appearance. Some of the more common skin conditions include:

  • Acne, which causes pimples when hair follicles under your skin get clogged up
  • Burns
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Dandruff, flaking of the skin on your scalp (the top of your head)
  • Eczema (atopic dermatitis), which causes inflammation, redness, and irritation of the skin
  • Hives, which are red and sometimes itchy bumps on your skin
  • Insect bites
  • Psoriasis, which causes itchy, scaly red patches
  • Skin cancer
  • Skin infections

How can I keep my skin healthy?

Since your skin protects your body in many ways, it's important to try to keep your skin healthy. For example, you can:

  • Wear the right protective equipment, like gloves, long sleeves, knee and elbow pads, or helmets to protect against cuts, bumps and scrapes.
  • If you do get a cut or scrape, clean it right away with soap and warm water. Put on a bandage to protect it while it heals.
  • When you are spending time outdoors, wear long sleeves and pants and use insect repellant to prevent insect bites.
  • Prevent sunburn by covering up and using sunscreen when outdoors.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
  • When you take a shower or bath, use warm (not hot) water. Use mild cleansers and wash gently (don't scrub).
  • Use moisturizers, like lotions, creams, or ointments, to prevent dry skin.
