Toxic Synovitis in children can also be named as transient synovitis or transient arthritis.
I suggest 716.4 transient arthropathy can fit in to report for this condition.

Toxic synovitis of the hip is the most common form of arthritis in children. It appears suddenly, disappears suddenly, and causes no lasting problems. Thus, it is often called transient synovitis.
Hope this works.

Thank you
