In the 2012 ICD-9-CM Manual, Alpha Index, pg 265, Gardner-Diamond syndrome is coded as 287.2. Check it out to see if it is appropriate for your medical record. Good luck.

I spent alot of time rersearchig this dx some time ago. As the other post states, the index leads you to 287.2 for Gardner-Diamond syndrome. You may want to query your provider. In our case, when I spoke to ours, 287.2 was not the appropriate code. If you research Gardner-Diamond syndrome, you'll find it is mostly a purpuric bleeding disorder of the skin. Gardener's Syndrome is a polyposis syndrome effecting the GI tract. We used 211.3.
