Valid for Submission
G62.81 is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of critical illness polyneuropathy. The code G62.81 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 G62.81 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like acute motor axonal neuropathy, acute motor sensory axonal neuropathy, critical illness polyneuropathy, guillain-barré syndrome or guillain-barré syndrome.
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 G62.81:
Inclusion TermsInclusion Terms
These terms are the conditions for which that code is to be used. The terms may be synonyms of the code title, or, in the case of "other specified" codes, the terms are a list of the various conditions assigned to that code. The inclusion terms are not necessarily exhaustive. Additional terms found only in the Alphabetic Index may also be assigned to a code.
- Acute motor neuropathy
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 G62.81 are found in the index:
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acute motor axonal neuropathy
- Acute motor sensory axonal neuropathy
- Critical illness polyneuropathy
- Guillain-Barré syndrome
- Guillain-Barré syndrome
- POLYNEUROPATHIES-. diseases of multiple peripheral nerves simultaneously. polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. the pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon myelin or both. the various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected e.g. sensory motor or autonomic by the distribution of nerve injury e.g. distal vs. proximal by nerve component primarily affected e.g. demyelinating vs. axonal by etiology or by pattern of inheritance.

Information for Patients
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.
