    I am looking for a code for "clinically isolated syndrome". I have been looking for a while and cannot find much. Any ideas?

    this is what I found...

    A clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) is an individual's first neurological episode, caused by inflammation or demyelination of nerve tissue. An episode may be monofocal, in which symptoms present at a single site in the central nervous system, or multifocal, in which multiple sites exhibit symptoms.


    see 341.8 and 729.2
