Myasthenia gravis without (acute) exacerbation
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
G70.00 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of myasthenia gravis without (acute) exacerbation. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code G700 is used to code Myasthenia gravis
Myasthenia gravis (from Greek μύς "muscle", ἀσθένεια "weakness", and Latin: gravis "serious"; abbreviated MG) is a neuromuscular disease that leads to fluctuating muscle weakness and fatigue. In the most common cases, muscle weakness is caused by circulating antibodies that block acetylcholine receptors at the postsynaptic neuromuscular junction, inhibiting the excitatory effects of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine on nicotinic receptors at neuromuscular junctions. Alternatively, in a much rarer form, muscle weakness is caused by a genetic defect in some portion of the neuromuscular junction that is inherited at birth as opposed to developing through passive transmission from the mother's immune system at birth or through autoimmunity later in life.

Equivalent ICD-9 Code GENERAL EQUIVALENCE MAPPINGS (GEM)
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 358.00 was previously used, G70.00 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
