2021 ICD-10-CM Codes for Disorders of globe (H44)

Clinical Terms for Disorders of globe (H44)

Panophthalmitis-. Acute suppurative inflammation of the inner eye with necrosis of the sclera (and sometimes the cornea) and extension of the inflammation into the orbit. Pain may be severe and the globe may rupture. In endophthalmitis the globe does not rupture.

Panuveitis-. Inflammation in which both the anterior and posterior segments of the uvea are involved and a specific focus is not apparent. It is often severe and extensive and a serious threat to vision. Causes include systemic diseases such as tuberculosis, sarcoidosis, and syphilis, as well as malignancies. The intermediate segment of the eye is not involved.

Degenerative Myopia-. Excessive axial myopia associated with complications (especially posterior staphyloma and CHOROIDAL NEOVASCULARIZATION) that can lead to BLINDNESS.

Ocular Hypotony-. Abnormally low intraocular pressure often related to chronic inflammation (uveitis).

Hemophthalmos-. Intraocular hemorrhage from the vessels of various tissues of the eye.
