Title: Dx
Post by: Yesica on December 02, 2009, 05:42:45 PM


How would you code Autoimmune Thrombocytopenia and ITP ? Is it the same Dx? Is there a difference between this two? Can someone explain the difference of this two?

Unless you are a coder, you shouldn't be coding.

Since it is not clear you should ask the dr for clarification, or someone with ICD9 coding.  I came up with the following:

287.4 Secondary thrombocytopenia
Posttransfusion purpura
Thrombocytopenia (due to):
extracorporeal circulation of blood
massive blood transfusion
platelet alloimmunization
Use additional E code to identify cause
heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) (289.84)
transient thrombocytopenia of newborn (776.1)

287.3 Primary thrombocytopenia
thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (446.6)
transient thrombocytopenia of newborn (776.1

287.33 Congenital and hereditary thrombocytopenic purpura
Congenital and hereditary thrombocytopenia
Thrombocytopenia with absent radii (TAR) syndrome
Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (279.12)

287.39 Other primary thrombocytopenia

287.5 Thrombocytopenia, unspecified

289.84 Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT)

287.30 Primary thrombocytopenia unspecified
Megakaryocytic hypoplasia
