| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

ICD Code T52 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the seven child codes of T52 that describes the diagnosis 'toxic effect of organic solvents' in more detail.


The ICD code T52 is used to code Intoxicative inhalant

Intoxicative inhalants are a broad range of intoxicative drugs whose volatile vapors or gases are taken in via the nose and trachea. They are taken by room temperature volatilization or from a pressurized container (e.g., nitrous oxide), and do not include drugs that are sniffed after burning or heating. For example, amyl nitrite and toluene are considered inhalants, but tobacco, cannabis, and crack are not, even though the latter are also inhaled (as smoke).
