F44.6 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of conversion disorder with sensory symptom or deficit. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code F44 is used to code Conversion disorder

Conversion disorder (CD) is a diagnostic category previously used in some psychiatric classification systems. It is sometimes applied to patients who present with neurological symptoms, such as numbness, blindness, paralysis, or fits, which are not consistent with a well-established organic cause, and which cause significant distress. It is thought that these symptoms arise in response to stressful situations affecting a patient's mental health or an ongoing mental health condition such as depression. Conversion Disorder was retained in DSM-5, but given the subtitle Functional Neurological Symptom Disorder. The new criteria cover the same range of symptoms, but remove the requirement for a psychological stressor to be present and for feigning to be disproved.
