2022 ICD-10-CM Codes for Echinococcosis (B67)

Clinical Terms for Echinococcosis (B67)

Echinococcosis-. An infection caused by the infestation of the larval form of tapeworms of the genus Echinococcus. The liver, lungs, and kidney are the most common areas of infestation.

Echinococcosis, Hepatic-. Liver disease caused by infections with parasitic tapeworms of the genus ECHINOCOCCUS, such as Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis. Ingested Echinococcus ova burrow into the intestinal mucosa. The larval migration to the liver via the PORTAL VEIN leads to watery vesicles (HYDATID CYST).

Echinococcosis, Pulmonary-. Helminth infection of the lung caused by Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis. CATSH = CAT LIST

Echinococcus-. A genus of very small TAPEWORMS, in the family Taeniidae. The adult form is found in various CARNIVORA but not humans. The larval form is seen in humans under certain epidemiologic circumstances.
