I have a patient that has a spinal syrinx. Syrinx is not in the ICD9CM so I asked the doc what it is. This is a hole in the patient's cervical spine. Any suggestions on how to code this? Thanks.

Not my area of expertise, but what about 722.91 "Other and unspecified disc disorder of cervical region":confused:
