Valid for Submission
S92.503S is a billable diagnosis code used to specify a medical diagnosis of displaced unspecified fracture of unspecified lesser toe(s), sequela. The code S92.503S is valid during the fiscal year 2021 from October 01, 2020 through September 30, 2021 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The ICD-10-CM code S92.503S might also be used to specify conditions or terms like closed fracture of epiphyseal plate of lesser toe or open fracture of phalanx of lesser toe. The code is exempt from present on admission (POA) reporting for inpatient admissions to general acute care hospitals.
S92.503S is a sequela code, includes a 7th character and should be used for complications that arise as a direct result of a condition like displaced unspecified fracture of unspecified lesser toe(s). According to ICD-10-CM Guidelines a "sequela" code should be used for chronic or residual conditions that are complications of an initial acute disease, illness or injury. The most common sequela is pain. Usually, two diagnosis codes are needed when reporting sequela. The first code describes the nature of the sequela while the second code describes the sequela or late effect.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like S92.503S 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:
- Closed fracture of epiphyseal plate of lesser toe
- Open fracture of phalanx of lesser toe

Toe Injuries and Disorders
Fourteen of the 26 bones in your feet are in your toes. The toes, particularly your big toe, help you move and keep your balance. Playing sports, running, stubbing your toe, and dropping something on your foot can damage your toes. Wearing shoes that are too loose or too tight can also cause toe problems. Certain diseases, such as severe arthritis, can cause toe problems and pain. Gout often causes pain in the big toe.
Common toe problems include
- Corns and bunions
- Ingrown toenails
- Sprains and dislocations
Treatments for toe injuries and disorders vary. They might include shoe inserts or special shoes, padding, taping, medicines, rest, and in severe cases, surgery.
