What is the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) code for periodic fever, aphthous stomatitis, pharyngitis, and adenopathy (PFAPA)? The only periodic fever code I could find is under amyloidosis, and that doesn't fit.

There is not one specific ICD, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) code for PFAPA. You have to code the individual symptoms of fever (780.60), aphthous stomatitis (528.2), pharyngitis (462), and adenitis (cervical adenopathy) (683).

The 2012 version of ICD, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) also does not provide a single code for PFAPA. Codes for the symptoms are R50.9, fever, unspecified; K12.0, recurrent oral aphthae, or K12.1, other forms of stomatitis; J02.9, acute pharyngitis, unspecified; and L04.0, acute lymphadenitis of face, head, and neck.
