Rickettsioses – Definitions, ICD 10 Codes & ICD 11 Codes


Definition of Rickettsioses: Any disease caused by an infection with the gram-negative bacteria Rickettsia. These diseases commonly present with fever, malaise, and rash. Transmission is commonly through the bite of an infected flea, louse, mite, or tick.

Typhus Fever

Definition of Typhus Fever: A disease caused by an infection with the gram-negative bacteria Rickettsia. This disease is characterised by fever, delirium, back pain, or arthralgia. Transmission is commonly through the bite of an infected flea, louse, mite, or tick.


ICD 11 Code For Typhus Fever

Exclusions: Rickettsiosis due to Ehrlichia sennetsu

1C30.0 Epidemic louse-borne typhus fever due to Rickettsia prowazekii

Definition of Epidemic louse-borne typhus fever due to Rickettsia prowazekii: This is a form of typhus so named because the disease often causes epidemics following wars and natural disasters. The causative organism is Rickettsia prowazekii, transmitted by the human body louse (Pediculus humanus corporis). This diagnosis is due to is a species of gram negative, Alpha Proteobacteria, obligate intracellular parasitic, aerobic bacteria that is the aetiologic agent of epidemic typhus, transmitted in the faeces of lice.

Rickettsialpox

Definition of Rickettsialpox: An acute febrile disease caused by Rickettsia akari, which is transmitted from its rodent host by the house-mouse mite Liponyssoides sanguineus. An initial skin lesion at the site of a mite bite, often associated with lymphadenopathy, is followed by fever; a disseminated skin rash appears, which generally does not involve the palms and the soles, and lasts only a few days. Death is uncommon.

Actinomycetoma

Definition of Actinomycetoma: Actinomycetoma is a chronic progressive subcutaneous infection caused by implantation of aerobic branching actinomycetes through a skin wound. These organisms are filamentous bacteria which live as saprophytes in soil or on plants; the commonest infecting agents are Nocardia brasiliensis, Actinomadura madurae and Streptomyces somaliensis. The earliest stage of infection is a firm painless nodule but with time the whole area becomes hard and swollen with multiple papules, pustules and draining sinuses on the skin surface. Extension to underlying bones and joints can result in gross deformity.
