Clinical Information
  • A disorder affecting the cranial nerves or the peripheral nervous system. It is manifested with pain, tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness. It may be the result of physical injury, toxic substances, viral diseases, diabetes, renal failure, cancer, and drugs.
  • A nerve disease where many peripheral nerves are affected
  • Diseases of multiple peripheral nerves simultaneously. Polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical, bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. The pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon, myelin or both. The various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected (e.g., sensory, motor, or autonomic), by the distribution of nerve injury (e.g., distal vs. Proximal), by nerve component primarily affected (e.g., demyelinating vs. Axonal), by etiology, or by pattern of inheritance.
  • Nervous system disorder
ICD-10-CM G62.9 is grouped within Diagnostic Related Group(s) (MS-DRG v36.0):
  • 073 Cranial and peripheral nerve disorders with mcc
