ICD-10-CM Code E22.0
Acromegaly and pituitary gigantism

Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

E22.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of acromegaly and pituitary gigantism. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code E220 is used to code Acromegaly

Acromegaly (/ˌækrəˈmɛɡəli, -roʊ-/;) from Ancient Greek άκρος akros "extreme" or "extremities" and μεγάλος megalos "large") is an extremely rare syndrome that results when the anterior pituitary gland produces excess growth hormone (GH) after epiphyseal plate closure at puberty. If GH is produced in excess prior to epiphyseal plate closure, the result is gigantism (or giantism). A number of disorders may increase the pituitary's GH output, although most commonly it involves a tumor called pituitary adenoma, derived from a distinct type of cell (somatotrophs).
