| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

L74.4 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of anhidrosis. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.

The ICD code L744 is used to code Hypohidrosis

Hypohidrosis is diminished sweating in response to appropriate stimuli. While hyperhidrosis is a socially troubling but benign condition, hypohidrosis can lead to hyperthermia, heat exhaustion, heat stroke and potentially death. An extreme case of hypohydrosis in which there is a complete absence of sweating and the skin is dry is termed anhidrosis.
