E00.2 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of congenital iodine-deficiency syndrome, mixed type. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Congenital iodine deficiency syndrome
- Congenital iodine deficiency syndrome of mixed type
- Congenital iodine deficiency syndrome of neurological type
- Endemic congenital iodine deficiency syndrome of myxedematous type
- Endemic cretinism
- Myxedematous form of cretinism
- Congenital Hypothyroidism-. a condition in infancy or early childhood due to an in-utero deficiency of thyroid hormones that can be caused by genetic or environmental factors, such as thyroid dysgenesis or hypothyroidism in infants of mothers treated with thiouracil during pregnancy. endemic cretinism is the result of iodine deficiency. clinical symptoms include severe mental retardation, impaired skeletal development, short stature, and myxedema.
- Myxedema-. a condition characterized by a dry, waxy type of swelling (edema) with abnormal deposits of mucopolysaccharides in the skin and other tissues. it is caused by a deficiency of thyroid hormones. the skin becomes puffy around the eyes and on the cheeks. the face is dull and expressionless with thickened nose and lips.
- Scleromyxedema-. a connective tissue disorder characterized by widespread thickening of skin with a cobblestone-like appearance. it is caused by proliferation of fibroblasts and deposition of mucin in the dermis in the absence of thyroid disease. most scleromyxedema cases are associated with a monoclonal gammopathy, immunoglobulin igg-lambda.
- Myxedema-. a condition characterized by severe hypothyroidism that is caused by autoimmune thyroid gland disorders, surgical reduction of thyroid tissue, radiation exposure, and viral infections. signs and symptoms include generalized fatigue, lethargy, increased body weight, pale, edematous and thickened skin, low blood pressure, constipation and cold intolerance.
- Scleromyxedema-. a rare chronic and progressive skin disorder characterized by mucin deposition in the skin, resulting in the thickening and hardening of the skin, predominantly in the face, fingers, and extremities.
- Endemic Cretinism-. severely reduced physical and mental growth associated with pyramidal and extrapyramidal signs and symptoms, due to dietary iodine deficiency.

These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.

Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck, just above your collarbone. It is one of your endocrine glands, which make hormones. Thyroid hormones control the rate of many activities in your body. These include how fast you burn calories and how fast your heart beats. All of these activities are your body's metabolism.
Thyroid problems include:
- Goiter - enlargement of the thyroid gland
- Hyperthyroidism - when your thyroid gland makes more thyroid hormones than your body needs
- Hypothyroidism - when your thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormones
- Thyroid cancer
- Thyroid nodules - lumps in the thyroid gland
- Thyroiditis - swelling of the thyroid
To diagnose thyroid diseases, doctors use a medical history, physical exam, and thyroid tests. They sometimes also use a biopsy. Treatment depends on the problem, but may include medicines, radioiodine therapy, or thyroid surgery.
