    Default Pyelonephritis with Bacteremia

    Promo: Code Books
    How would I code Pyelonephritis with Bacteremia? I have 590.10 for pyelonephritis and 790.7 for bacteremia, but is there a code for the combo?

    Thanks!

    Default Pyelonephritis with Bacteremia

    Is it "acute"? Because with that information would be code 590.80, and 790.7. If you know what kind of organism is then you would use a "0" code such as Ecoli 041.4. Or if it is "syphilitic" would be 095.4.
    Thanks,
