ICD 9 Codes for Dysautonomias

Recommended Posts

For your erudition, I've compiled some ICD codes to follow up on a prior thread on the forum:


333.0 Other degenerative diseases of the basal ganglia

* Atrophy or degeneration:

o olivopontocerebellar [D?j?rine-Thomas syndrome]

o pigmentary pallidal [Hallervorden-Spatz disease] striatonigral

* Parkinsonian syndrome associated with:

o idiopathic orthostatic hypotension

o symptomatic orthostatic hypotension

* Progressive supranuclear ophthalmoplegia or palsy

* Shy-Drager syndrome


337 Disorders of the autonomic nervous system

* Includes: disorders of peripheral autonomic, sympathetic, parasympathetic, or vegetative system

* Excludes: familial dysautonomia [Riley-Day syndrome] (742.8)

* 337.0 Idiopathic peripheral autonomic neuropathy

o Carotid sinus syncope or syndrome

o Cervical sympathetic dystrophy or paralysis

* 337.1 Peripheral autonomic neuropathy in disorders classified elsewhere

o Code first underlying disease, as:

+ amyloidosis (277.3)

+ diabetes (250.6)


337.9 Unspecified disorder of autonomic nervous system


742.8 familial dysautonomia [Riley-Day syndrome]


780.0 Hypotension


742.8, 337, 786.2, 798.1, 992.1, 768.2, 768 Syncope


458.9 Hypotension, unspecified

458.1 Chronic hypotension


458.0 Orthostatic hypotension


orthostatic (chronic)



756.83 Ehlers-Danlos syndrome


427.89 Other Rhythm disorder:

coronary sinus



Wandering (atrial) pacemaker


carotid sinus syncope (337.0)

neonatal bradycardia (779.81)

neonatal tachycardia (779.82)

reflex bradycardia (337.0)

tachycardia NOS (785.0)

Thanks Nina,

My endocrinologist's office struggled to find a ICD codes.

I had a list of some of them before, but I misplaced it, and my books are three years old, and there have been new ones added.

I'll print this list. I hope to go back into coding some day, but for now i'm too wiped out. The anatomy and physiology was fairly easy to learn, but the coding was pretty intense, and there was a lot of reading---HIPPA information---ect.

Our class did well, and we were actually in an advanced class to code actual surgical reports. I feel like i've lost touch with some of it since the fall 2002/winter and spring/summer 2003. It was a 9 month program.

It looks like that is about as close as they can come for now.
