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

Additional Info

  • There is no absolute threshold for serum CPK or serum myoglobin which identifies rhabdo.
    • You should code it if there is an acute renal injury felt to be due to it.
    • Also code it if the choice was made to treat it (usually with rapid IV fluid administration, with or without bicarb, or dialysis).
    • Other possible consideration includes serum myoglobin > 800 micrograms/L

Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition

  • Myoglobinuria -- this is one of the isolated lab abnormality codes, and thus should ONLY be coded when a cause for it is not known. So if rhabdo is the cause and is coded, do NOT code myoglobinuria.
Muscle problem codes:

Candidate Combined ICD10 codes

The cause, e.g.

  • A drug or toxin
Poisoning codes:
One of the many codes in Category:Trauma that are of the template: "body part, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma":   
Shoulder or upper arm, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma
Forearm, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma
Wrist or hand or fingers, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma
Hip or thigh, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma
Knee or lower leg, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma
Ankle or foot or toes, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma
Upper limb (arm), level not specified/NOS, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma
Lower limb (leg), level not specified/NOS, muscles/tendons, wound/injury/trauma
