ICD Code Q76 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the ten child codes of Q76 that describes the diagnosis 'congenital malformations of spine and bony thorax' in more detail.

The ICD code Q76 is used to code Spondylocostal dysostosis

Spondylocostal dysostosis is a rare, heritable axial skeleton growth disorder. It is characterized by widespread and sometimes severe malformations of the vertebral column and ribs, shortened thorax, and moderate to severe scoliosis and kyphosis. Individuals with Jarcho-Levin typically appear to have a short trunk and neck, with arms appearing relatively long in comparison, and a slightly protuberant abdomen. Severely affected individuals may have life-threatening pulmonary complications due to deformities of the thorax. The syndrome was first described by Saul Jarcho and Paul M. Levin at Johns Hopkins University in 1938.

Specialty: Medical Genetics
ICD 9 Code: 756.9
