T60.8X4A is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of toxic effect of other pesticides, undetermined, initial encounter. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code T60 is used to code Health effects of pesticides
Health effects of pesticides may be acute or delayed in those who are exposed. A 2007 systematic review found that "most studies on non-Hodgkin lymphoma and leukemia showed positive associations with pesticide exposure" and thus concluded that cosmetic use of pesticides should be decreased. Strong evidence also exists for other negative outcomes from pesticide exposure including neurological problems, birth defects, fetal death, and neurodevelopmental disorder.
