ICD Code G72 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the seven child codes of G72 that describes the diagnosis 'other and unspecified myopathies' in more detail.


The ICD code G72 is used to code Myopathy

Myopathy is a muscular disease in which the muscle fibers do not function for any one of many reasons, resulting in muscular weakness. "Myopathy" simply means muscle disease (myo- Greek μυο "muscle" + pathos -pathy Greek "suffering"). This meaning implies that the primary defect is within the muscle, as opposed to the nerves ("neuropathies" or "neurogenic" disorders) or elsewhere (e.g., the brain etc.). Muscle cramps, stiffness, and spasm can also be associated with myopathy.
