2014 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code H47.22
Hereditary optic atrophy
H47.22 is a billable ICD-10-CM code that can be used to specify a diagnosis.
On October 1, 2015 ICD-10-CM will replace ICD-9-CM in the United States, therefore, H47.22 and all other ICD-10-CM codes should only be used for training or planning purposes until then.
A hereditary disorder caused by mitochondrial mutations, resulting in the degeneration of the retinal ganglion cells and optic atrophy. It is characterized by an acute or subacute loss of central vision. It may initially affect one eye only, but eventually the central loss of vision becomes bilateral.
A maternally linked genetic disorder that presents in mid-life as acute or subacute central vision loss leading to central scotoma and blindness. The disease has been associated with missense mutations in the mtdna, in genes for complex i, iii, and iv polypeptides, that can act autonomously or in association with each other to cause the disease.

Hereditary conditions that feature progressive visual loss in association with optic atrophy. Relatively common forms include autosomal dominant optic atrophy (optic atrophy, autosomal dominant) and leber hereditary optic atrophy (optic atrophy, hereditary, leber).
