Scarlet fever is a disease which can occur as a result of a group A streptococcus (group A strep) infection. The signs and symptoms include a sore throat, fever, headaches, swollen lymph nodes, and a characteristic rash. The rash is red and feels like sandpaper and the tongue may be red and bumpy. It most commonly affects children between five and 15 years of age.
Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition
- Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome
- Skin rash, drug-induced (drug eruption)
- Contact dermatitis
- Kawasaki disease (mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome)
- Toxic shock syndrome
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 with implied pathogen
This diagnosis implies its pathogen. A pathogen should not be coded.
