Acute Renal Failure With Chronic Renal Failure
Occasionally, medical record documentation may state the patient was admitted with acute-on-chronic renal failure, meaning there was an exacerbation of the chronic status, which may have been indicated by a rise in the creatinine level. Another condition such as dehydration may have caused the exacerbation. In this case, it is appropriate to assign a code for both the acute renal failure (584.9) and chronic renal failure (585.9).
