A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes. It means "not coded here". A type 1 excludes note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as M41. A type 1 excludes note is for used for when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Clinical Information
  • A congenital or acquired spine deformity characterized by lateral curvature of the spine.
  • A disorder characterized by a malformed, lateral curvature of the spine.
  • Abnormal lateral curvature of spine
  • An appreciable lateral deviation in the normally straight vertical line of the spine. (Dorland, 27th ed)
  • Appreciable lateral deviation in the normally straight vertical line of the spine.
  • Scoliosis causes a sideways curve of your backbone, or spine. These curves are often s- or c-shaped. Scoliosis is most common in late childhood and the early teens, when children grow fast. Girls are more likely to have it than boys. It can run in families. Symptoms include leaning to one side and having uneven shoulders and hips.sometimes the curve is temporary. It might be due to muscle spasms, inflammation or having different leg lengths. A birth defect, tumor or another disease might cause the spine to have a curve that isn't temporary. People with mild scoliosis might only need checkups to see if the curve is getting worse. Others might need to wear a brace or have surgery. nih: national institute of arthritis and musculoskeletal and skin diseases
