Valid for Submission
E75.22 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of gaucher disease. The code E75.22 is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code E75.22 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acute neuronopathic gaucher's disease, cerebral degeneration in gaucher's disease, chronic non-neuropathic gaucher's disease, gaucher's disease, kerasin thesaurismosis , subacute neuronopathic gaucher's disease, etc.
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 E75.22 are found in the index:
- - Cerebroside lipidosis - E75.22
- - Degeneration, degenerative
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acute neuronopathic Gaucher's disease
- Cerebral degeneration in Gaucher's disease
- Chronic non-neuropathic Gaucher's disease
- Gaucher's disease
- Kerasin thesaurismosis
- Subacute neuronopathic Gaucher's disease
- GAUCHER DISEASE-. an autosomal recessive disorder caused by a deficiency of acid beta glucosidase glucosylceramidase leading to intralysosomal accumulation of glycosylceramide mainly in cells of the mononuclear phagocyte system. the characteristic gaucher cells glycosphingolipid filled histiocytes displace normal cells in bone marrow and visceral organs causing skeletal deterioration hepatosplenomegaly and organ dysfunction. there are several subtypes based on the presence and severity of neurological involvement.
Convert E75.22 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code E75.22 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
Gaucher disease is a rare, inherited disorder. It is a type of lipid metabolism disorder. If you have it, you do not have enough of an enzyme called glucocerebrosidase. This causes too much of a fatty substance to build up in your spleen, liver, lungs, bones and, sometimes, your brain. This prevents these organs from working properly.
There are three types:
- Type 1, the most common form, causes liver and spleen enlargement, bone pain and broken bones, and, sometimes, lung and kidney problems. It does not affect the brain. It can occur at any age.
- Type 2, which causes severe brain damage, appears in infants. Most children who have it die by age 2.
- In type 3, there may be liver and spleen enlargement. The brain is gradually affected. It usually starts in childhood or adolescence.
Gaucher disease has no cure. Treatment options for types 1 and 3 include medicine and enzyme replacement therapy, which is usually very effective. There is no good treatment for the brain damage of types 2 and 3.

Gaucher disease Gaucher disease is an inherited disorder that affects many of the body's organs and tissues. The signs and symptoms of this condition vary widely among affected individuals. Researchers have described several types of Gaucher disease based on their characteristic features.Type 1 Gaucher disease is the most common form of this condition. Type 1 is also called non-neuronopathic Gaucher disease because the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) are usually not affected. The features of this condition range from mild to severe and may appear anytime from childhood to adulthood. Major signs and symptoms include enlargement of the liver and spleen (hepatosplenomegaly), a low number of red blood cells (anemia), easy bruising caused by a decrease in blood platelets (thrombocytopenia), lung disease, and bone abnormalities such as bone pain, fractures, and arthritis.Types 2 and 3 Gaucher disease are known as neuronopathic forms of the disorder because they are characterized by problems that affect the central nervous system. In addition to the signs and symptoms described above, these conditions can cause abnormal eye movements, seizures, and brain damage. Type 2 Gaucher disease usually causes life-threatening medical problems beginning in infancy. Type 3 Gaucher disease also affects the nervous system, but it tends to worsen more slowly than type 2.The most severe type of Gaucher disease is called the perinatal lethal form. This condition causes severe or life-threatening complications starting before birth or in infancy. Features of the perinatal lethal form can include extensive swelling caused by fluid accumulation before birth (hydrops fetalis); dry, scaly skin (ichthyosis) or other skin abnormalities; hepatosplenomegaly; distinctive facial features; and serious neurological problems. As its name indicates, most infants with the perinatal lethal form of Gaucher disease survive for only a few days after birth.Another form of Gaucher disease is known as the cardiovascular type because it primarily affects the heart, causing the heart valves to harden (calcify). People with the cardiovascular form of Gaucher disease may also have eye abnormalities, bone disease, and mild enlargement of the spleen (splenomegaly).
