Valid for Submission
E75.3 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of sphingolipidosis, unspecified. The code E75.3 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 E75.3 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like sphingolipidosis.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like E75.3 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
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 E75.3 are found in the index:
- - Degeneration, degenerative
- - Sphingolipidosis - E75.3
- - Sphingomyelinosis - E75.3
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- SPHINGOLIPIDOSES-. a group of inherited metabolic disorders characterized by the intralysosomal accumulation of sphingolipids primarily in the central nervous system and to a variable degree in the visceral organs. they are classified by the enzyme defect in the degradation pathway and the substrate accumulation or storage. clinical features vary in subtypes but neurodegeneration is a common sign.
- TAY SACHS DISEASE-. an autosomal recessive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the onset in infancy of an exaggerated startle response followed by paralysis dementia and blindness. it is caused by mutation in the alpha subunit of the hexosaminidase a resulting in lipid laden ganglion cells. it is also known as the b variant with increased hexosaminidase b but absence of hexosaminidase a and is strongly associated with ashkenazic jewish ancestry.
Convert E75.3 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code E75.3 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
Genetic Brain Disorders
Also called: Inborn genetic brain disorders
A genetic brain disorder is caused by a variation or a mutation in a gene. A variation is a different form of a gene. A mutation is a change in a gene. Genetic brain disorders affect the development and function of the brain.
Some genetic brain disorders are due to random gene mutations or mutations caused by environmental exposure, such as cigarette smoke. Other disorders are inherited, which means that a mutated gene or group of genes is passed down through a family. They can also be due to a combination of both genetic changes and other outside factors.
Some examples of genetic brain disorders include
- Tay-Sachs disease
- Wilson disease
Many people with genetic brain disorders fail to produce enough of certain proteins that influence brain development and function. These brain disorders can cause serious problems that affect the nervous system. Some have treatments to control symptoms. Some are life-threatening.
