Question
MP/H Rules/Histology--Urinary system: Is code 8130 is the only valid code for papillary carcinoma cases dx 2007 forward? If this is correct, then should we have any 2007 cases forward coded to 8050 in our database?

The MP/H rules for ureter, renal pelvis, and bladder H4 states to code papillary carcinoma to 8130, yet code 8050 is also listed in M6 for papillary carcinoma.

The IARC publication Pathology and Genetics of Tumours of the Urinary System and Male Genital Organs uses code 8130 only for papillary carcinoma.

Discussion


Answer
8050 should not be used for papillary carcinoma of the urinary system diagnosed starting in 2007. Rule M6 was written to take pre-2007 cases into consideration.
