Valid for Submission
E83.01 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of wilson's disease. The code E83.01 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 E83.01 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like chorea co-occurrent and due to wilson disease, chorea due to heredodegenerative disorder, disorder of copper metabolism, disorder of liver due to disorder of mineral metabolism, westphal-strumpell syndrome , wilson's disease, 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 E83.01:

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 E83.01 are found in the index:

- - Degeneration, degenerative
- - hepatolenticular (Wilson's) - E83.01
- - lenticular (familial) (progressive) (Wilson's) (with cirrhosis of liver) - E83.01
- - Wilson's hepatolenticular - E83.01
- - Dementia (degenerative (primary)) (old age) (persisting) - F03.90

The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Chorea co-occurrent and due to Wilson disease
- Chorea due to heredodegenerative disorder
- Disorder of copper metabolism
- Disorder of liver due to disorder of mineral metabolism
- Westphal-Strumpell syndrome
- Wilson's disease
- HEPATOLENTICULAR DEGENERATION-. a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by the deposition of copper in the brain; liver; cornea; and other organs. it is caused by defects in the atp7b gene encoding copper transporting atpase 2 ec 22.214.171.124 also known as the wilson disease protein. the overload of copper inevitably leads to progressive liver and neurological dysfunction such as liver cirrhosis; tremor; ataxia and intellectual deterioration. hepatic dysfunction may precede neurologic dysfunction by several years.
Convert E83.01 to ICD-9 Code
The General Equivalency Mapping (GEM) crosswalk indicates an approximate mapping between the ICD-10 code E83.01 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
Wilson disease is a rare inherited disorder that prevents your body from getting rid of extra copper. You need a small amount of copper from food to stay healthy. Too much copper is poisonous.
Normally, your liver releases extra copper into bile, a digestive fluid. With Wilson disease, the copper builds up in your liver, and it releases the copper directly into your bloodstream. This can cause damage to your brain, kidneys, and eyes.
Wilson disease is present at birth, but symptoms usually start between ages 5 and 35. It first attacks the liver, the central nervous system or both. The most characteristic sign is a rusty brown ring around the cornea of the eye. A physical exam and laboratory tests can diagnose it.
Treatment is with drugs to remove the extra copper from your body. You need to take medicine and follow a low-copper diet for the rest of your life. Don't eat shellfish or liver, as these foods may contain high levels of copper. At the beginning of treatment, you'll also need to avoid chocolate, mushrooms, and nuts. Have your drinking water checked for copper content and don't take multivitamins that contain copper.
With early detection and proper treatment, you can enjoy good health.

Wilson disease is an inherited disorder in which excessive amounts of copper accumulate in the body, particularly in the liver, brain, and eyes. The signs and symptoms of Wilson disease usually first appear between the ages of 6 and 45, but they most often begin during the teenage years. The features of this condition include a combination of liver disease and neurological and psychiatric problems.
Liver disease is typically the initial feature of Wilson disease in affected children and young adults; individuals diagnosed at an older age usually do not have symptoms of liver problems, although they may have very mild liver disease. The signs and symptoms of liver disease include yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes (jaundice), fatigue, loss of appetite, and abdominal swelling.
Nervous system or psychiatric problems are often the initial features in individuals diagnosed in adulthood and commonly occur in young adults with Wilson disease. Signs and symptoms of these problems can include clumsiness, tremors, difficulty walking, speech problems, impaired thinking ability, depression, anxiety, and mood swings.
In many individuals with Wilson disease, copper deposits in the front surface of the eye (the cornea) form a green-to-brownish ring, called the Kayser-Fleischer ring, that surrounds the colored part of the eye. Abnormalities in eye movements, such as a restricted ability to gaze upwards, may also occur.
