Tuberculosis diagnosis has a long list of ICD 10 codes. In ICD 9, the diagnosis codes were very limited, but with the use ICD 10 codes, the number of diagnosis codes for tuberculosis has increased significantly. The new ICD 10 codes for tuberculosis are very specific as well compared to ICD9. Now, to code perfectly for tuberculosis we should first know all the ICD 10 codes used for coding tuberculosis. So, here I am sharing a list of ICD 10 codes which has all the diagnosis codes for tuberculosis. Hope, you will learn everything about tuberculosis through this article.
