ICD-10-CM Code G63
Polyneuropathy in diseases classified elsewhere
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
Manifestation CodeCertain ICD-10-CM codes identify an underlying condition known as an etiology code. Conditions that arise as a result of an underlying condition (etiology), are referred to as Manifestations. In ICD-10-CM, etiology codes must be coded first, followed by the manifestation codes. When a condition requires etiology and manifestation codes, there is a "use additional code" note following the etiology code and a "code first" note following the manifestation code.
G63 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of polyneuropathy in diseases classified elsewhere. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code G63 is used to code Polyneuropathy
Polyneuropathy or symmetrical polyneuropathy (poly- + neuro- + -pathy) is damage or disease affecting peripheral nerves (peripheral neuropathy) in roughly the same areas on both sides of the body, featuring weakness, numbness, pins-and-needles, and burning pain. It usually begins in the hands and feet and may progress to the arms and legs; and sometimes to other parts of the body where it may affect the autonomic nervous system. It may be acute (appearing suddenly, progressing rapidly and resolving slowly) or chronic (emerging and developing gradually). A number of different disorders may cause polyneuropathy, including diabetes and some types of Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Coding Notes for G63 Info for medical coders on how to properly use this ICD-10 code
- Underlying disease, such as:
- Amyloidosis See code E85.-
- Endocrine disease, except diabetes See Section E00-E07, E15-E16, E20-E34)
- Metabolic diseases See Section E70-E88
- Neoplasm See Section C00-D49
- Nutritional deficiency See Section E40-E64
Code Type-1 Excludes:
Type-1 ExcludesType-1 Excludes mean the conditions excluded are mutually exclusive and should never be coded together. Excludes 1 means "do not code here."
- Polyneuropathy (in):
- Diabetes mellitus - instead, use Section E08-E13 with .42)
- Diphtheria - instead, use code A36.83
- Infectious mononucleosis (B27.0-B27.9 with 1) - instead, use code B27.0-
- Lyme disease - instead, use code A69.22
- Mumps - instead, use code B26.84
- Postherpetic - instead, use code B02.23
- Rheumatoid arthritis - instead, use code M05.33
- Scleroderma - instead, use code M34.83
- Systemic lupus erythematosus - instead, use code M32.19
- DRG Group #073-074 - Cranial and peripheral nerve disorders with MCC.
- DRG Group #073-074 - Cranial and peripheral nerve disorders without MCC.
Coding Advice SNOMET-CT
- Consider additional code to identify specific condition or disease
- This is a manifestation code for use in a secondary position
Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)
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 G63 and a single ICD9 code, 357.4 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
