| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

E22.8 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other hyperfunction of pituitary gland. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code E228 is used to code Precocious puberty

In medicine, precocious puberty is puberty occurring at an unusually early age. In most cases, the process is normal in every aspect except the unusually early age, and simply represents a variation of normal development. In a minority of children, the early development is triggered by a disease such as a tumor or injury of the brain. Even when there is no disease, unusually early puberty can have adverse effects on social behavior and psychological development, can reduce adult height potential, and may shift some lifelong health risks. Central precocious puberty can be treated by suppressing the pituitary hormones that induce sex steroid production.
