Non-specific code icon 2014 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code C91.0

Acute lymphoblastic leukemia [ALL]

  • C91.0 is not a billable ICD-10-CM diagnosis code and cannot be used to indicate a medical diagnosis as there are 3 codes below C91.0 that describe this diagnosis in greater detail.
  • ICD-10-CM codes become active beginning October 1, 2015, therefore, this and all ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
Clinical Information
  • A progressive, proliferative disease of blood cells, originating from immature lymphoid cells.
  • A quickly progressing disease in which too many immature white blood cells called lymphoblasts are found in the blood and bone marrow.
  • Acute leukemia in which lymphoblasts and their progenitor cells predominate; the most common childhood cancer and accounts for 20 percent of adult acute leukemia; common all antigen (calla) expressed in most cases.
  • An aggressive (fast-growing) type of leukemia (blood cancer) in which too many lymphoblasts (immature white blood cells) are found in the blood and bone marrow.
  • leukemia is cancer of the white blood cells. White blood cells help your body fight infection. Your blood cells form in your bone marrow. In leukemia, however, the bone marrow produces abnormal white blood cells. These cells crowd out the healthy blood cells, making it hard for blood to do its work. In acute lymphocytic leukemia (all), there are too many of specific types of white blood cells called lymphocytes or lymphoblasts. All is the most common type of cancer in children.possible risk factors for all include being male, being white, previous chemotherapy treatment, exposure to radiation, and for adults, being older than 70.symptoms of all include:
    • weakness or feeling tired
    • fever
    • easy bruising or bleeding
    • bleeding under the skin
    • shortness of breath
    • weight loss or loss of appetite
    • pain in the bones or stomach
    • pain or a feeling of fullness below the ribs
    • painless lumps in the neck, underarm, stomach, or groin
    tests that examine the blood and bone marrow diagnose all. Treatments include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, stem cell transplants, and targeted immune therapy. Once the leukemia is in remission, you need additional treatment to make sure that it does not come back. nih: national cancer institute
  • Leukemia with an acute onset, characterized by the presence of lymphoblasts in the bone marrow and the peripheral blood. It includes the acute b lymphoblastic leukemia and acute t lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Leukemia with an acute onset, characterized by the presence of lymphoblasts in the bone marrow and the peripheral blood. It includes the precursor b lymphoblastic leukemia and precursor t lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Code C91.0 should only be used for T-cell and B-cell precursor leukemia
Mortality Data
  • Between 1999-2007 there were 12,692 deaths in the United States where ICD-10 C91.0 was indicated as the underlying cause of death [source: cdc.govlink to]
  • ICD-10 C91.0 as underlying cause of death data broken down by: gender, age, race, year
