2015 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code M08
M08 is not a billable ICD-10-CM diagnosis code and cannot be used to indicate a medical diagnosis as there are 2 codes below M08 that describe this diagnosis in greater detail.
On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, M08 - and all other ICD-10-CM codes - should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
This is the American ICD-10-CM version of M08. Other international ICD-10 versions may differ.
Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic onset (still's disease, juvenile onset), polyarticular onset, and pauciarticular onset; adult onset cases of still's disease (still's disease, adult onset) are also known; only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular onset, rheumatoid factor positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.
