2024 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code Q01.9
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Cerebrospinal fluid otorrhea
- Cerebrospinal fluid otorrhea due to encephalocele
- Congenital cerebral hernia
- Congenital cerebral meningocele
- Congenital malformation of dural sinus
- Isolated encephalocele
- Sinus pericranii
- Encephalocele-. brain tissue herniation through a congenital or acquired defect in the skull. the majority of congenital encephaloceles occur in the occipital or frontal regions. clinical features include a protuberant mass that may be pulsatile. the quantity and location of protruding neural tissue determines the type and degree of neurologic deficit. visual defects, psychomotor developmental delay, and persistent motor deficits frequently occur.
- Sinus Pericranii-. rare vascular anomaly involving a communication between the intracranial and extracranial venous circulation via diploe, the central spongy layer of cranial bone. it is often characterized by dilated venous structures on the scalp due to abnormal drainage from the intracranial venous sinuses. sinus pericranii can be congenital or traumatic in origin.
- Cerebrospinal Fluid Otorrhea-. discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through the external auditory meatus or through the eustachian tube into the nasopharynx. this is usually associated with craniocerebral trauma (e.g., skull fracture involving the temporal bone;), neurosurgical procedures; or other conditions, but may rarely occur spontaneously. (from am j otol 1995 nov;16(6):765-71)
- Cerebrospinal Fluid Otorrhea-. discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through the ear structures.

Neural Tube Defects
Neural tube defects are birth defects of the brain, spine, or spinal cord. They happen in the first month of pregnancy, often before a woman even knows that she is pregnant. The two most common neural tube defects are spina bifida and anencephaly. In spina bifida, the fetal spinal column doesn't close completely. There is usually nerve damage that causes at least some paralysis of the legs. In anencephaly, most of the brain and skull do not develop. Babies with anencephaly are usually either stillborn or die shortly after birth. Another type of defect, Chiari malformation, causes the brain tissue to extend into the spinal canal.
The exact causes of neural tube defects aren't known. You're at greater risk of having an infant with a neural tube defect if you:
- Have obesity
- Have poorly controlled diabetes
- Take certain antiseizure medicines
Getting enough folic acid, a type of B vitamin, before and during pregnancy prevents most neural tube defects.
Neural tube defects are usually diagnosed before the infant is born, through lab or imaging tests. There is no cure for neural tube defects. The nerve damage and loss of function that are present at birth are usually permanent. However, a variety of treatments can sometimes prevent further damage and help with complications.
