  • This code includes infectious mediastinitis from any cause. As usual, if a causative factor is present and known, also code it and combine the two codes.

Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition

Candidate Combined ICD10 codes

Infections

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 Infections in ICD10 for more info.

Infection requiring pathogen

This diagnosis is an infection that requires a pathogen to be coded.
