    How about :
    583.81 Nephritis and nephropathy, not specified as acute or chronic, in diseases classified elsewhere, Code first underlying disease, as:

    amyloidosis (277.30-277.39)
    diabetes mellitus (249.4, 250.4)
    gonococcal infection (098.19)
    Goodpasture's syndrome (446.21)
    systemic lupus erythematosus (710.0)
    tuberculosis (016.0)

    I stand by what I already stated: 042 & 583.9.

    Stated "AIDS Nephropathy", I would code it 042 & 583.81.
