The ICD code G12 is used to code Spinal muscular atrophies
Spinal muscular atrophies (SMAs) are a genetically and clinically heterogeneous group of rare debilitating disorders characterised by the degeneration of lower motor neurons (neuronal cells situated in the anterior horn of spinal cord) and subsequent atrophy (wasting) of various muscle groups in the body. While some SMAs lead to early infant death, other types permit normal adult life with only mild weakness.
Location of neurons affected in spinal muscular atrophies
- DRG Group #056-057 - Degenerative nervous system disorders with MCC.
- DRG Group #056-057 - Degenerative nervous system disorders without MCC.
