T37.2X1A is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of poisoning by antimalarials and drugs acting on other blood protozoa, accidental (unintentional), initial encounter. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code T372 is used to code Cinchonism
Cinchonism or quinism is a pathological condition caused by an overdose of quinidine or its natural source, cinchona bark. Quinine is medically used to treat malaria. In much smaller amounts, quinine is an ingredient of tonic drinks, acting as a bittering agent. Cinchonism can occur from therapeutic doses of quinine, either from one or several large doses. Quinidine (Class 1A anti-arrhythmic) can also cause cinchonism symptoms to develop with as little as a single dose.
