ICD-10-CM Code G58

Other mononeuropathies

Version 2021 Non-Billable Code

Not Valid for Submission

G58 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of other mononeuropathies. The code is NOT valid for the year 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.

ICD-10:G58
Short Description:Other mononeuropathies
Long Description:Other mononeuropathies

Consider the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity:

  • G58.0 - Intercostal neuropathy
  • G58.7 - Mononeuritis multiplex
  • G58.8 - Other specified mononeuropathies
  • G58.9 - Mononeuropathy, unspecified

Clinical Information

  • DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES-. peripheral autonomic and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with diabetes mellitus. these conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves vasa nervorum. relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy see oculomotor nerve diseases; mononeuropathy; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful polyneuropathy; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy. from adams et al. principles of neurology 6th ed p1325
  • MONONEUROPATHIES-. disease or trauma involving a single peripheral nerve in isolation or out of proportion to evidence of diffuse peripheral nerve dysfunction. mononeuropathy multiplex refers to a condition characterized by multiple isolated nerve injuries. mononeuropathies may result from a wide variety of causes including ischemia; traumatic injury; compression; connective tissue diseases; cumulative trauma disorders; and other conditions.

Code Classification

  • Diseases of the nervous system (G00–G99)
    • Nerve, nerve root and plexus disorders (G50-G59)
      • Other mononeuropathies (G58)

Information for Patients


Peripheral Nerve Disorders

Also called: Neuritis, Peripheral neuritis, Peripheral neuropathy

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

  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Burning or tingling
  • Muscle weakness
  • Sensitivity to touch

Treatment aims to treat any underlying problem, reduce pain and control symptoms.
