External ICD10 Documentation
This diagnosis is a part of ICD10 collection.

Additional Info

  • This code includes any resistance to any of the carbapenem antibiotics
    • Carbapenem antibiotics include meropenem, imipenem, ertapenem, doripenem
  • Includes: Carbapenem resistant enterobacteriaceae, Carbapenemase producing enterobacteriaceae (ie. CPE).
  • NOTE: often susceptibility testing to a carbapenem will be reported as being “intermediate susceptible”. For our purposes use this code for both organisms listed as "resistant" or as being "intermediate susceptible".

This is not a standard ICD10 code but a ICD10 CA code. We added it for the following reason:
Antimicrobial resistance is not coded in standard ICD10.

See Non-standard ICD10 Diagnoses for other codes like this.


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.

Antibiotic resistance

Antibiotic resistance is coded as Combined ICD10 codes of the condition/pathogen and the resistance. See Antibiotic Resistant Organism for more info.
