What is the ICD 9 CODE (dx code) for HYPERCELLULAR MARROW WITH TRILINEAGE MATURATION so sorry I made the mistake earlier of asking the wrong question.

Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are a heterogeneous group of acquired clonal disorders affecting the haematopoietic system. The bone marrow becomes hypercellular or hypocellular with disordered growth and maturation of a clonal proliferation of abnormal cells. This causes peripheral blood cytopenias due to insufficient haematopoiesis among healthy marrow cells, affecting the myeloid (white cells), erythroid (red cells) and megakaryocyte (platelets) lines.
