G57.93 - Unspecified mononeuropathy of bilateral lower limbs
|Short Description:||Unspecified mononeuropathy of bilateral lower limbs|
|Long Description:||Unspecified mononeuropathy of bilateral lower limbs|
|Status:||Valid for Submission|
G57.93 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of unspecified mononeuropathy of bilateral lower limbs. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like G57.93 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.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Bilateral neuralgia of nerve of lower limbs
- Bilateral sural neuropathy
- Disorder of left sural nerve
- Disorder of right sural nerve
- Neuralgia of nerve of left lower limb
- Neuralgia of nerve of right lower limb
- Sural neuropathy
G5793 replaces the following previously assigned ICD-10 code(s):
- G57.91 - Unspecified mononeuropathy of right lower limb
- G57.92 - Unspecified mononeuropathy of left lower limb

Peripheral Nerve Disorders
Your peripheral nerves are the ones outside your brain and spinal cord. Like static on a telephone line, peripheral nerve disorders distort or interrupt the messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
There are more than 100 kinds of peripheral nerve disorders. They can affect one nerve or many nerves. Some are the result of other diseases, like diabetic nerve problems. Others, like Guillain-Barre syndrome, happen after a virus infection. Still others are from nerve compression, like carpal tunnel syndrome or thoracic outlet syndrome. In some cases, like complex regional pain syndrome and brachial plexus injuries, the problem begins after an injury. Some people are born with peripheral nerve disorders.
Symptoms often start gradually, and then get worse. They include :
- Burning or tingling
- Muscle weakness
- Sensitivity to touch
Treatment aims to treat any underlying problem, reduce pain and control symptoms.
