ICD-10-CM Code G62.81

Critical illness polyneuropathy

Version 2021 Billable Code

Valid for Submission

G62.81 is a billable code used to specify a medical diagnosis of critical illness polyneuropathy. The code is valid for the fiscal year 2021 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 or acute motor sensory axonal neuropathy or critical illness polyneuropathy or guillain-barré syndrome or guillain-barré syndrome.

Inclusion Terms

Inclusion 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

Synonyms

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

Clinical Information

  • 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

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.
