Diseases Due To Cestodes – Definitions & ICD 11 Codes

Cysticercosis

Definition of Cysticercosis: A disease caused by an infection of tissue with larval cysts from the parasitic worm Taenia solium. This disease presents with symptoms depending on the site of infection (central nervous system, eye, or muscle). Transmission is through haematogenous spread of larvae to affected tissue after ingestion of Taenia solium eggs (or proglottids) in contaminated food or water. Confirmation is commonly by detection of antibodies against Taenia solium in a blood sample, cerebrospinal fluid, or faeces, and by advanced imaging of affected tissue.

ICD 11 Code For Cysticercosis

1F70  Cysticercosis

Inclusions:

  • cysticerciasis infection due to larval form of Taenia solium

1F70.0 Cysticercosis of central nervous system

Definition of Cysticercosis of central nervous system: A disease of the central nervous system, caused by an infection of tissue with larval cysts from the parasitic worm Taenia solium. This disease presents with symptoms depending on the site of infection, the number and size of cysts, and the individual’s immune status. This disease may present with epilepsy, chronic headache, hydrocephalus, neurological deficits, or may be asymptomatic. Transmission is by haematogenous spread of larvae to the central nervous system after ingestion of Taenia solium eggs in contaminated food or water. Confirmation is by detection of antibodies against Taenia solium in a blood sample, or cerebrospinal fluid and advanced imaging of the brain.

Coded Elsewhere:

  • Encephalitis due to cysticercosis (1D00.2)

1F70.00 Meningitis due to Cysticercosis

Definition of Meningitis due to Cysticercosis: A disease of the meninges, caused by an infection with larval cysts from the parasitic worm Taenia solium. This disease is characterised by headache, fever, seizures, or neurological deficits. Transmission is through hematogenous spread of larvae to the meninges after ingestion of Taenia solium eggs (or proglottids) in contaminated food or water. Confirmation is by advanced imaging and detection of antibodies against Taenia solium from serum or cerebrospinal fluid.

1F70.1 Cysticercosis of eye

Definition of Cysticercosis of eye: A disease of the eye, caused by an infection of tissue with larval cysts from the parasitic worm Taenia solium. This disease is characterised by cysts floating in the vitreous humour of the eye leading to impaired vision. Transmission is by haematogenous spread of larvae to the eye after ingestion of Taenia solium eggs in contaminated food or water. Confirmation is commonly by history of travel in parasite endemic regions and advanced imaging of the eye.

1F70.Y Other specified cysticercosis

1F70.Z Cysticercosis unspecified

Diphyllobothriasis

Definition of Diphyllobothriasis: A disease caused by an infection with the parasitic worm Diphyllobothrium. This disease is characterised by abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, vomiting, or weight loss. This disease may be asymptomatic. Transmission is by ingestion of infected undercooked fish. Confirmation is by identification of Diphyllobothriasis eggs in a faecal sample.

ICD 11 Code For Diphyllobothriasis

  1F71  Diphyllobothriasis

Exclusions:

  • larval diphyllobothriasis (1F75)

Dipylidiasis

Definition of Dipylidiasis: A condition caused by an infection with the parasitic worm Dipylidium caninum. This condition commonly present with abdominal pain, diarrhoea, anal pruritus, or may be asymptomatic. Transmission is by ingestion of an infected flea. Confirmation is by identification of Dipylidium caninum eggs in a faecal sample.

ICD 11 Code For Dipylidiasis

  1F72  Dipylidiasis

Echinococcosis

1F73.3 Echinococcus infection of central nervous system

Coded Elsewhere:

  • Encephalitis due to echinococcosis (1D00.2)

1F73.Y Other specified echinococcosis

1F73.Z Echinococcosis unspecified

Hymenolepiasis

Definition of Hymenolepiasis: A disease caused by an infection with the parasitic worm Hymenolepis. This disease is commonly asymptomatic. This disease may present with nausea, weakness, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, or vomiting. Transmission is by the ingestion of eggs commonly in contaminated food or water, or ingestion of infected arthropods. Confirmation is by identification of Hymenolepis eggs in a faecal sample.

ICD 11 Code For Hymenolepiasis

  1F74  Hymenolepiasis

Sparganosis

Definition of Sparganosis: A disease caused by an infection with the parasitic worm Spirometra. This disease presents with symptoms depending on the site of the infection. Transmission is by ingestion of contaminated water or ingestion of infected undercooked second intermediate hosts (such as fish, reptiles or amphibians). Confirmation is by identification of Spirometra eggs in a faecal sample.

ICD 11 Code For Sparganosis

  1F75  Sparganosis

Inclusions:

  • Larval diphyllobothriasis
  • Spirometrosis

Taeniasis

Definition of Taeniasis: A disease of the intestines, caused by an infection with the adult parasitic worm Taenia. This disease is characterised by abdominal pain, weight loss, diarrhoea, constipation, or may be asymptomatic. Transmission is by ingestion of larval cysts in undercooked beef or pork. Confirmation is by identification of Taenia eggs or proglottids in faecal samples (samples from multiple days).

ICD 11 Code For Taeniasis

  1F76  Taeniasis

Exclusions:

  • Cysticercosis (1F70)

1F76.0 Taeniasis due to Taenia solium

Definition of Taeniasis due to Taenia solium: A disease of the intestines, caused by an infection with the adult parasitic worm Taenia solium. This disease is characterised by abdominal pain, weight loss, diarrhoea, constipation, or may be asymptomatic. Transmission is by ingestion of larval cysts in undercooked pork. Confirmation is by identification of Taenia solium eggs or proglottidis in faecal samples (samples from multiple days).

Inclusions:

  • Taenia solium taeniasis

Definition of Taeniasis due to Taenia saginata: A disease of the intestines, caused by an infection with the adult parasitic worm Taenia saginata. This disease is characterised by abdominal pain, weight loss, diarrhoea, constipation, or may be asymptomatic. Transmission is by ingestion of larval cysts in undercooked beef. Confirmation is by identification of Taenia saginata eggs or proglottids in faecal samples (samples from multiple days).
