Q61.4: Renal dysplasia
Your kidneys have not developed properly. This condition is congenital, which means you were born with it.
There are normally 2 kidneys in the body. They filter blood and create urine. They thus help to detoxify the body. Furthermore, the kidneys regulate the blood pressure and salt content in the blood, among other things.
You may have several cavities with fluid in the kidneys, for example.
If the kidneys are not properly developed, they may not work properly. It is also possible that you have no symptoms at all.
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
