    Fibrosis and cirrhosis of liver
Approximate Synonyms
  • Biliary cirrhosis
Clinical Information
  • Cirrhosis of the liver caused either by destruction of the intrahepatic bile ducts (primary biliary cirrhosis) or blockage of the extrahepatic bile ducts (secondary biliary cirrhosis).
  • Fibrosis of the hepatic parenchyma due to obstruction of bile flow (cholestasis) in the intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts (bile ducts, intrahepatic; bile ducts, extrahepatic). Primary biliary cirrhosis involves the destruction of small intra-hepatic bile ducts and bile secretion. Secondary biliary cirrhosis is produced by prolonged obstruction of large intrahepatic or extrahepatic bile ducts from a variety of causes.
ICD-10-CM K74.5 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v37.0):
  • 432 Cirrhosis and alcoholic hepatitis with mcc
  • 433 Cirrhosis and alcoholic hepatitis with cc
  • 434 Cirrhosis and alcoholic hepatitis without cc/mcc
