    2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 Non-Billable/Non-Specific Code
  • D18.0 should not be used for reimbursement purposes as there are multiple codes below it that contain a greater level of detail.
  • The 2020 edition of ICD-10-CM D18.0 became effective on October 1, 2019.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of D18.0 - other international versions of ICD-10 D18.0 may differ.
Applicable To
  • Angioma NOS
  • Cavernous nevus

    Neoplasms

    Note
    • Functional activity
    • All neoplasms are classified in this chapter, whether they are functionally active or not. An additional code from Chapter 4 may be used, to identify functional activity associated with any neoplasm.
    • Morphology [Histology]
    • Chapter 2 classifies neoplasms primarily by site (topography), with broad groupings for behavior, malignant, in situ, benign, etc. The Table of Neoplasms should be used to identify the correct topography code. In a few cases, such as for malignant melanoma and certain neuroendocrine tumors, the morphology (histologic type) is included in the category and codes.
    • Primary malignant neoplasms overlapping site boundaries
    • A primary malignant neoplasm that overlaps two or more contiguous (next to each other) sites should be classified to the subcategory/code .8 ('overlapping lesion'), unless the combination is specifically indexed elsewhere. For multiple neoplasms of the same site that are not contiguous, such as tumors in different quadrants of the same breast, codes for each site should be assigned.
    • Malignant neoplasm of ectopic tissue
    • Malignant neoplasms of ectopic tissue are to be coded to the site mentioned, e.g., ectopic pancreatic malignant neoplasms are coded to pancreas, unspecified (C25.9).

    • blue or pigmented nevus (D22.-)
    • nevus NOS (D22.-)
    • vascular nevus (Q82.5)
    Hemangioma and lymphangioma, any site
Clinical Information
  • A benign localized vascular neoplasm usually occurring in infancy and childhood. It is characterized by the formation of capillary-sized or cavernous vascular channels. The majority of cases are congenital.
  • A benign skin lesion consisting of dense, usually elevated masses of dilated blood vessels
  • A benign tumor of the blood vessels that appears on skin
  • A benign vascular neoplasm characterized by the formation of capillary-sized or cavernous vascular channels.
  • A hemangioma characterized by the presence of cavernous vascular spaces.
  • A vascular anomaly due to proliferation of blood vessels that forms a tumor-like mass. The common types involve capillaries and veins. It can occur anywhere in the body but is most frequently noticed in the skin and subcutaneous tissue. (from stedman, 27th ed, 2000)
  • A vascular anomaly that is a collection of tortuous blood vessels and connective tissue. This tumor-like mass with the large vascular space is filled with blood and usually appears as a strawberry-like lesion in the subcutaneous areas of the face, extremities, or other regions of the body including the central nervous system.
  • Benign tumors that are made up of small blood vessels.
  • Extremely common benign tumor, occurring most commonly in infancy and childhood, made up of newly formed blood vessels, and resulting from malformation of angioblastic tissue of fetal life; can occur anywhere in the body but is most frequently noticed in the skin and subcutaneous tissues.
