PRIMARY LYMPHEDEMA / SECONDARY LYMPHEDEMA / DISEASE CODING AND CLASSIFICATION / INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF DISEASES


The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems 10th Revision (ICD-10) is a coding of diseases and signs, symptoms, abnormal findings, complaints, social circumstances and external causes of injury or diseases, as classified by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Lymphedema is considered a disease of the Circulatory System, and Primary Lymphedema and Secondary Lymphedema have both classification codes. Scroll down and visit the following pages to find the corresponding codes and clinical information:
