ICD-10-CM Code G61.0
Guillain-Barre syndrome

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

G61.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of guillain-Barre syndrome. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code G610 is used to code Demyelinating disease

A demyelinating disease is any disease of the nervous system in which the myelin sheath of neurons is damaged. This damage impairs the conduction of signals in the affected nerves. In turn, the reduction in conduction ability causes deficiency in sensation, movement, cognition, or other functions depending on which nerves are involved.

Acute infective polyneuritis (exact match)

This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 357.0 was previously used, G61.0 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
