ICD-10-CM Code G93.0
Cerebral cysts

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

G93.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of cerebral cysts. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code G930 is used to code Bobble-head doll syndrome

Bobble-head doll syndrome is a rare neurological movement disorder in which patients, usually children around age 3, begin to bob their head and shoulders forward and back, or sometimes side-to-side, involuntarily, in a manner reminiscent of a bobblehead doll. The syndrome is related to cystic lesions and swelling of the third ventricle in the brain. Symptoms of bobble-head doll syndrome are diverse but can be grouped into two categories: physical and neurological. The most common form of treatment is surgical implanting of a shunt to relieve the swelling of the brain.

Cerebral cysts (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 348.0 was previously used, G93.0 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
