Need help with a brain imagining icd 10 chronic wallerian degeneration along the descending corticospinal tract. I see the index say see disorder nerve . I know this tract supplies the musculature of the body. How does this get coded ? G98.8? G52.9? Mono neuropathy?
thank you

Since 'corticospinal tract' or its equivalent is not listed under 'disorder > nerve' in the alphabetic index, I would default to 'specified NEC' and choose G58.8 for this.
