epstein-bar virus

How do I find Epstein Barr virus code?
I've looked under: Epstein, infection, and virus.
What am I missing? Where should I look?

  • I’m thinking B27.0 - you will need a 5th digit yet

  • B27.90
  • The B27.0's appear to be referring to the a diagnosis of mononucleosis. If the patient doesn't have that, I'm not sure that I would code it. Epstein Barr virus can cause many illnesses and its presence doesn't equal mono.
