Valid for Submission
E27.8 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of other specified disorders of adrenal gland. The code E27.8 is valid during the fiscal year 2022 from October 01, 2021 through September 30, 2022 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code E27.8 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like abnormality of cortisol-binding globulin, adrenal cyst, adrenal gland cytomegaly, adrenal hyperplasia, adrenocortical hyperplasia , aldosterone disorder, etc.
Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries
The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to the code E27.8:
Inclusion TermsInclusion Terms
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.
- Abnormality of cortisol-binding globulin
Index to Diseases and Injuries
The Index to Diseases and Injuries is an alphabetical listing of medical terms, with each term mapped to one or more ICD-10 code(s). The following references for the code E27.8 are found in the index:
- - Abnormal, abnormality, abnormalities - See Also: Anomaly;
- - Abscess (connective tissue) (embolic) (fistulous) (infective) (metastatic) (multiple) (pernicious) (pyogenic) (septic) - L02.91
- - Adrenalitis, adrenitis - E27.8
- - Degeneration, degenerative
- - Disease, diseased - See Also: Syndrome;
- - Disorder (of) - See Also: Disease;
- - Hyperplasia, hyperplastic
- - Inflammation, inflamed, inflammatory (with exudation)
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Abnormality of cortisol-binding globulin
- Adrenal cyst
- Adrenal gland cytomegaly
- Adrenal hyperplasia
- Adrenocortical hyperplasia
- Aldosterone disorder
- Bilateral mass of adrenal glands
- Capsular extrusion of adrenal cortex
- Corticosteroid-binding globulin deficiency
- Cortisol binding globulin high
- Cortisol binding globulin low
- Disorder of cortisol-cortisone shuttle
- Endocrine disorder related to puberty
- Enlarged adrenal gland
- Generalized glucocorticoid resistance syndrome
- Hyperaldosteronism with nodular hyperplasia of adrenal cortex
- Hypercortisolism due to macronodular adrenal hyperplasia
- Macronodular adrenal hyperplasia
- Mass of left adrenal gland
- Mass of right adrenal gland
- Micronodular adrenal hyperplasia
- Precocious puberty with adrenal hyperplasia

Convert E27.8 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code E27.8 its ICD-9 equivalent. The approximate mapping means there is not an exact match between the ICD-10 code and the ICD-9 code and the mapped code is not a precise representation of the original code.
Information for Patients
Adrenal Gland Disorders
The adrenal glands are small glands located on top of each kidney. They produce hormones that you can't live without, including sex hormones and cortisol. Cortisol helps you respond to stress and has many other important functions.
With adrenal gland disorders, your glands make too much or not enough hormones. In Cushing's syndrome, there's too much cortisol, while with Addison's disease, there is too little. Some people are born unable to make enough cortisol.
Causes of adrenal gland disorders include
- Genetic mutations
- Tumors including pheochromocytomas
- A problem in another gland, such as the pituitary, which helps to regulate the adrenal gland
- Certain medicines
Treatment depends on which problem you have. Surgery or medicines can treat many adrenal gland disorders.
