Additional Info

  • Lung abscess is a type of liquefactive necrosis of the lung tissue and formation of cavities (more than 2 cm) containing necrotic debris or fluid caused by microbial infection.
  • The formation of multiple small (< 2 cm) abscesses is occasionally referred to as necrotizing pneumonia or lung gangrene. Both lung abscess and necrotizing pneumonia are manifestations of a similar pathologic process.
    • To code a necrotizing pneumonia, link this code with the code for the pneumonia:
Pneumonia codes:

Includes:

  • gangrene of lung
  • necrotic lung

  • Lisa updated the includes for this to add "necrotizing cavitary pneumonias". So, I added the "Pneumonia" category. I think this is something Julie occasionally reports on, so I want to make sure that coding this pneumonia in a more generic waste basket will not cause problems for her reporting. Emailed Julie and Lisa with link to this.
    • Thanks. The investigator who had CAP request included this code too so I have added this code under pneumonia in my filtering. --JMojica 10:26, 2021 October 21 (CDT)
      • Do you not use the s_ICD10_Categories table for this kind of filtering? I thought we implemented that so we can be consistent with these things over time. Ttenbergen 10:59, 2021 October 21 (CDT)
