|Dx:||Gastrointestinal infection (gastroenteritis, colitis), bug NOS|
|APACHE Como Component:||none|
|APACHE Acute Component:||2019-0: GI NOS|
|External ICD10 Documentation|
This diagnosis is a part of ICD10 collection.
Excludes: This code should be used when none of the other codes for GI infections are applicable:
- This code should have a pathogen entry too, but because there are already more specific codes for GI infections that are bacterial, viral or protozoal (see list above), with this more general wastebasket code for GI infections, the pathogen should ONLY be either Other type of infectious organism, NOS or Infectious organism, unknown.
Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition
- Food poisoning (due to foodborne bacterial toxin), NOS
- Typhoid fever or Paratyphoid fever (due to Salmonella typhi or Salmonella enterica)
- Salmonella enteritis
- Cholera (due to Vibrio cholerae)
- Shigellosis (dysentery due to Shigella species)
- Clostridium difficile infection (C. diff)
- Botulism (due to Clostridium botulinum toxin)
- Amoebiasis (amoebic dysentery due to Entamoeba histolytica)
Candidate Combined ICD10 codes
Infections in ICD10 have combined coding requirements for some of their pathogens. Any that have antibiotic resistances would store those as Combined ICD10 codes as well. If the infection is acquired in the hospital, see Nosocomial infection, NOS. See Lab and culture reports for confirmation and details about tests. See Infections in ICD10 for more general info.
