The ICD code M41 is used to code Kyphoscoliosis

Kyphoscoliosis describes an abnormal curvature of the spine in both a coronal and sagittal plane. It is a combination of kyphosis and scoliosis. This musculoskeletal disorder often leads to other issues in patients, such as under-ventilation of lungs, pulmonary hypertension, difficulty in performing the day to day activities, psychological issues emanating from fear of acceptance among peers, especially in young patients.. It can also be seen in syringomyelia, Friedreich's ataxia and Duchenne muscular dystrophy due to asymmetric weakening of the paraspinal muscles.
