In brief: Unspecified.icd-9

The icd-9 codes for infections can be confusing to physicians and the lay public.
What you are probably looking at is a billing code to help insurers categorize the illness. What it means is that the code either did not have the specific type of infection listed or the cause of that infection was not known. I can not tell you which it was with more information.
