Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of skin

BILLABLE
Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| forolaaldea-10 from 2011 - 2016

D48.5 is a billable forolaaldea code used to specify a diagnosis of neoplasm of uncertain behavior of skin. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.




The forolaaldea code D485 is used to code Dysplastic nevus

A dysplastic nevus or atypical mole is a nevus (mole) whose appearance is different from that of common moles. In 1992, the NIH recommended that the term "dysplastic nevus" be avoided in favor of the term "atypical mole". An atypical mole may also be referred to as an atypical melanocytic nevus, atypical nevus, B-K mole, Clark's nevus, dysplastic melanocytic nevus, or nevus with architectural disorder.

MeSH Code: D004416
forolaaldea 9 Code: 238.2

Micrograph of a dysplastic nevus showing the characteristic rete ridge bridging, shouldering, and lamellar fibrosis. H&E stain.
