Sepsis – Definitions & ICD 11 Codes

Coding Note:

  • Any type of infection – bacterial, viral, fungal or protozoal, can cause sepsis and must be coded first. When the site of infection is unknown, select a code for Infection of unspecified site by organism followed by the appropriate code for sepsis.

Exclusions:

  • Plague (1B93)
  • Acute or fulminant melioidosis (1C42)
  • Tularaemia (1B94)
  • Other infection during labour (JB0D)
  • Injury or harm arising following infusion, transfusion or therapeutic injection, not elsewhere classified (NE80)
  • Genital tract or pelvic infection following abortion, ectopic or molar pregnancy (JA05.0)
  • Disseminated gonococcal infection (1A73)
  • Extraintestinal yersiniosis (1B9A)
  • Injury or harm arising from a procedure, not elsewhere classified (NE81)
  • Meningococcal disease (1C1C)
  • Systemic inflammatory response syndrome of noninfectious origin (MG46)

Coded Elsewhere:

  • Puerperal sepsis (JB40.0)
  • Sepsis of fetus or newborn (KA60)

Sepsis without septic shock

Definition of Sepsis without septic shock: Sepsis is defined as a life-threatening organ dysfunction caused by a dysregulated host response to infection.

ICD 11 Code For Sepsis without septic shock

  1G40  Sepsis without septic shock

Coding Note:

  • Any type of infection – bacterial, viral, fungal or protozoal, can cause sepsis and must be coded first. When the site of infection is unknown, select a code for Infection of unspecified site by organism followed by the appropriate code for sepsis.

Exclusions:

  • Septicaemia (MA15.0)

Coded Elsewhere:

  • Obstetric pyaemic or septic embolism (JB42.3)

Sepsis with septic shock

Definition of Sepsis with septic shock: Septic shock is a subset of sepsis in which circulatory, cellular and metabolic abnormalities are profound enough to substantially increase mortality.

  1G41  Sepsis with septic shock

Coding Note:

  • Any type of infection – bacterial, viral, fungal or protozoal, can cause sepsis and must be coded first. When the site of infection is unknown, select a code for Infection of unspecified site by organism followed by the appropriate code for sepsis.

Exclusions:

  • Bacteraemia (MA15.0)

Certain other disorders of infectious origin

Definition of Certain other disorders of infectious origin: Miscellaneous disorders of infectious origin not classifiable elsewhere including those due to algae and oomycetes

1G60.0 Mycetoma of unknown or unspecified type

Definition of Mycetoma of unknown or unspecified type: Mycetoma is a destructive localised chronic infection of skin, subcutaneous tissue and bone, most commonly affecting the foot. It can be caused by either fungi (eumycetoma) or filamentous bacteria (actinomycetoma). Where possible it should be classified more precisely as either actinomycetoma, the commonest type, or eumycetoma

Exclusions:

  • Actinomycetoma (1C43)
  • Eumycetoma (1F29)

1G60.1 Pythiosis

Definition of Pythiosis: Pythiosis is a life-threatening infection by the oömycete Pythium insidiosum. Although infection in animals occurs widely across the world, human pythiosis is largely confined to Thailand and, with the exception of ocular disease, is closely associated with underlying haematological disease, especially thalassaemia. There is a high mortality in patients with disseminated or vascular disease. In the latter form, invasion of arterial wall results in vascular occlusion and a frequent need for amputation. Patients with ocular pythiosis commonly require enucleation. A small proportion of infections are limited to the skin and subcutaneous tissues.

1G60.2 Protothecosis

Definition of Protothecosis: Protothecosis is a rare opportunistic infection in humans caused by achloric algae of the genus Prototheca. The infection is usually localised and may be associated with antecedent local trauma. It is generally located on exposed sites and remains confined to skin and subcutaneous tissues. In immunocompromised patients, however, widespread cutaneous, subcutaneous or deep infection may occur.
