I63.6 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of cerebral infarction due to cerebral venous thrombosis, nonpyogenic. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code I636 is used to code Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) is the presence of acute thrombosis (a blood clot) in the dural venous sinuses, which drain blood from the brain. Symptoms may include headache, abnormal vision, any of the symptoms of stroke such as weakness of the face and limbs on one side of the body, and seizures. The diagnosis is usually by computed tomography (CT/CAT scan) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) employing radiocontrast to demonstrate obstruction of the venous sinuses by thrombus.
