| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

J37.0 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of chronic laryngitis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code J370 is used to code Laryngitis

Laryngitis is an inflammation of the larynx. It causes hoarse voice or temporary complete loss of the voice because of irritation to the vocal folds (vocal cords). Dysphonia is the medical term for a vocal disorder, of which laryngitis is one cause.

Chronic laryngitis (exact match)
