Hypopituitarism

    2016 2017 Billable/Specific Code

  • E23.0 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes.
  • This is the American ICD-10-CM version of E23.0. Other international versions of ICD-10 E23.0 may differ.
  • Reimbursement claims with a date of service on or after October 1, 2015 require the use of ICD-10-CM codes.

Clinical Information
  • A condition of diminution or cessation of secretion of one or more hormones from the anterior pituitary gland. This may result from surgical or radiation ablation, non-secretory pituitary neoplasms, metastatic tumors, infarction, pituitary apoplexy, infiltrative or granulomatous processes, and other conditions.
  • A form of dwarfism caused by complete or partial growth hormone deficiency, resulting from either the lack of growth hormone-releasing factor from the hypothalamus or from the mutations in the growth hormone gene (gh1) in the pituitary gland. It is also known as type i pituitary dwarfism. Human hypophysial dwarf is caused by a deficiency of human growth hormone during development.
  • A genetically heterogeneous disorder caused by hypothalamic gnrh deficiency and olfactory nerve defects. It is characterized by congenital hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia, possibly with additional midline defects. It can be transmitted as an x-linked (genetic diseases, x-linked), an autosomal dominant, or an autosomal recessive trait.
  • A syndrome, sometimes considered as three separate entities (kalmann syndromes 1, 2, and 3), characterized mainly by reduced hypothalamic function and reduced pituitary gonadotropic activity and deficiency of gonadotropin-releasing hormone with resulting hypogonadism and absent or reduced sense of smell due to agenesis of the olfactory bulbs. Associated anomalies include cleft palate, neurosensory hearing loss, congenital heart defect, intestinal malrotation, renal agenesis, hypertension, mental retardation, color blindness, and other defects. Most abnormalities occur in types 1 and 2; type 3 is marked mainly by hypogonadotropic hypogonadism, anosmia, and craniofacial abnormalities.
  • An x-linked or autosomal dominant genetic syndrome characterized by hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia.
  • Anosmia due to failure of the olfactory lobes to develop, with secondary hypogonadism due to gonadotropic hormone deficiency.
  • Diminution or cessation of secretion of one or more hormones from the anterior pituitary gland (including lh; follicle stimulating hormone; somatotropin; and corticotropin). This may result from surgical or radiation ablation, non-secretory pituitary neoplasms, metastatic tumors, infarction, pituitary apoplexy, infiltrative or granulomatous processes, and other conditions.
  • Diminution or cessation of secretion of one or more hormones from the anterior pituitary gland (including luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone, somatotropin; and corticotropin); may result from surgical or radiation ablation, non-secretory pituitary neoplasms, metastatic tumors, infarction, pituitary apoplexy, infiltrative or granulomatous processes, and other conditions.
  • Form of dwarfism due to deficient release of growth hormone which may result from dysfunction of the hypothalamus or anterior pituitary gland.
