Type 1 Excludes Help
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes. It means "not coded here". A type 1 excludes note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as M08. A type 1 excludes note is for used for when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Clinical Information
  • 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.
