    Type 2 Excludes
    Chronic respiratory disease originating in the perinatal period
Clinical Information
  • A chronic lung disease developed after oxygen inhalation therapy or mechanical ventilation (ventilation, mechanical) usually occurring in certain premature infants (infant, premature) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (respiratory distress syndrome, newborn). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as metaplasia, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of cysts.
  • A non-neoplastic lung disorder which develops in premature neonates who have been treated with oxygen and mechanical ventilation.
  • Chronic lung disease of infants, possibly related to oxygen toxicity or barotrauma, characterized by bronchiolar metaplasia and interstitial fibrosis.
ICD-10-CM P27.8 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v36.0):
  • 196 Interstitial lung disease with mcc
  • 197 Interstitial lung disease with cc
  • 198 Interstitial lung disease without cc/mcc
