Premature graying hair.

Try this code,
704.3 Variations in hair color
Canities (premature)
Grayness, hair (premature)
Heterochromia of hair
Poliosis:
NOS
circumscripta, acquired

This is the closest I can find.

Hi,
You might also add the code 259.1 (precocity) if it is documented in the patient's records.
