The ICD code Q891 is used to code Absent adrenal gland

Anomalies of adrenal gland (exact match)

This is the official exact match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that in all cases where the ICD9 code 759.1 was previously used, Q89.1 is the appropriate modern ICD10 code.
