|These categories should never be used in primary coding. They are provided for use as supplementary or additional codes when it is desired to identify the antibiotic to which a bacterial agent is resistant, in bacterial infection classified elsewhere.
|Agent resistant to penicillin and related antibiotics
|Penicillin resistant agent
|Methicillin resistant agent
|Agent resistant to other penicillin-related antibiotic
|Agent resistant to vancomycin and related antibiotics
|Vancomycin resistant agent
|Agent resistant to other vancomycin-related antibiotic
|Agent resistant to multiple antibiotics
|This category is provided for use when a bacterial agent is resistant to two or more antibiotics but there is insufficient detail to determine which antibiotic is contributing most to the "main condition". It should also be used for primary tabulation purposes when it is more convenient to record a single code; otherwise each specific antibiotic-resistant agent should be coded separately.
|Agent resistant to other and unspecified antibiotics
|Agent resistant to other single specified antibiotic
|Agent resistant to unspecified antibiotic
