2022 ICD-10-CM Codes for Other conditions of integument specific to newborn (P83)

Instructional Notations

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.

  • congenital malformations of skin and integument Q80 Q84
  • hydrops fetalis due to hemolytic disease P56
  • neonatal skin infection P39.4
  • staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome L00

Type 2 Excludes Type 2 Excludes
A type 2 excludes note represents "Not included here". An excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate.

  • cradle cap L21.0
  • diaper [napkin] dermatitis L22
