- Myositis means inflammation of the muscles that you use to move your body. An injury, infection, or autoimmune disease can cause it.
If it is non-infectious, code Muscle, noninfectious inflammation NOS (inflammatory myositis) instead.
- use this code for generic muscle abscess, as per Aug 28 Task meeting
Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition
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.
Infection requiring pathogen
This diagnosis is an infection that requires a pathogen to be coded.
