| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

G71.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of muscular dystrophy. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code G710 is used to code Distal muscular dystrophy

Distal muscular dystrophy (or distal myopathy) is a group of disorders characterized by onset in the hands or feet. Many types involve dysferlin, but it has been suggested that not all cases do.
