    please check out Diseases; Pott's (see also Tuberculosis) Pott's Syndrome is a synonym for Pott's Disease
    015.0x [use additinal code to identify manifestation, as: curvature of spine [Pott's](737.4) - kyphosis(737.4) - spondylitis(720.81)


    POTS- Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome - you're in the right ball park 427.89
