ICD-10-CM Code E72.3
Disorders of lysine and hydroxylysine metabolism

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

E72.3 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of disorders of lysine and hydroxylysine metabolism. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code E723 is used to code Glutaric acidemia type 2

Glutaric acidemia type 2 is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder that is characterised by defects in the ability of the body to use proteins and fats for energy. Incompletely processed proteins and fats can build up, leading to a dangerous chemical imbalance called acidosis.

MeSH Code: D054069
ICD 9 Code: 277.85

Glutaric aciduria (type I)
Code Type-1 Excludes:
Type-1 Excludes
Type-1 Excludes mean the conditions excluded are mutually exclusive and should never be coded together. Excludes 1 means "do not code here."
Glutaric aciduria type II - instead, use code E71.313

Other disturbances of straight-chain amino-acid metabolism (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code E72.3 and a single ICD9 code, 270.7 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
