ICD Code M31.3 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the two child codes of M31.3 that describes the diagnosis 'wegener's granulomatosis' in more detail.

The ICD code M313 is used to code Granulomatosis with polyangiitis

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), formerly referred to as Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), is a systemic disorder that involves both granulomatosis and polyangiitis. It is a form of vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) that affects small- and medium-size vessels in many organs. Damage to the lungs and kidneys can be fatal. It requires long-term immunosuppression. The condition was originally named for Friedrich Wegener, who described the disease in 1936. As a response to Wegener's association with the German Nazi party, professional bodies and journals have replaced his name with a descriptive name. However, the older name is still often seen.
