Specific code icon 2014 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code D57.1

Sickle-cell disease without crisis

  • D57.1 is a billable ICD-10-CM code that can be used to specify a diagnosis.
  • On October 1, 2014 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, D57.1 and all other ICD-10-CM codes should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
Clinical Information
  • A blood disorder characterized by the appearance of sickle-shaped red blood cells and anemia.
  • A disease characterized by chronic hemolytic anemia, episodic painful crises, and pathologic involvement of many organs. It is the clinical expression of homozygosity for hemoglobin s.
  • An inherited disease in which the red blood cells have an abnormal crescent shape, block small blood vessels, and do not last as long as normal red blood cells. Sickle cell anemia is caused by a mutation (change) in one of the genes for hemoglobin (the substance inside red blood cells that binds to oxygen and carries it from the lungs to the tissues). It is most common in people of west and central african descent.
  • Disease characterized by chronic hemolytic anemia, episodic painful crises, and pathologic involvement of many organs; the clinical expression of homozygosity for hemoglobin s.
  • Sickle cell anemia is a disease in which your body produces abnormally shaped red blood cells. The cells are shaped like a crescent or sickle. They don't last as long as normal, round red blood cells, which leads to anemia. The sickle cells also get stuck in blood vessels, blocking blood flow. This can cause pain and organ damage. A genetic problem causes sickle cell anemia. People with the disease are born with two sickle cell genes, one from each parent. If you only have one sickle cell gene, it's called sickle cell trait. About 1 in 12 african americans has sickle cell trait. A blood test can show if you have the trait or anemia. Most states test newborn babies as part of their newborn screening programs.
