B95.0: Streptococcus, group A, as the cause of diseases classified to other chapters
You have an illness caused by bacteria from the streptococci group.
Bacteria occur everywhere in the environment. For example, bacteria can be transmitted by air or skin contact. Some bacteria frequently cause diseases if you come into contact with them. Other bacteria can also live on the skin or in the intestines without making us sick. However, you can be weakened by other medical conditions. In that case, you can also fall ill as a result of these otherwise harmless bacteria.
On medical documents, the ICD code is often appended by letters that indicate the diagnostic certainty or the affected side of the body.
- G: Confirmed diagnosis
- V: Tentative diagnosis
- Z: Condition after
- A: Excluded diagnosis
- L: Left
- R: Right
- B: Both sides
