Other specified disorders of binocular movement

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

H51.8 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other specified disorders of binocular movement. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code H518 is used to code Oculogyric crisis

Oculogyric crisis (OGC) is the name of a dystonic reaction to certain drugs or medical conditions characterized by a prolonged involuntary upward deviation of the eyes. The term "oculogyric" refers to the bilateral elevation of the visual gaze, but several other responses are associated with the crisis. Epilepsy can manifest as oculogyric seizures, also called versive seizures.

  • Esotropia with dissociated vertical deviation (disorder)


Anomalies of divergence (approximate match)
Other dissociated deviation of eye movements (approximate match)

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 H51.8 and a single ICD9 code, 378.87 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
