    I would code the symptoms since there is not a code for this dx, well I could not find one.
    These codes may not be the best, you may want to check the notes to see which symptoms the patient is having you may find better codes to describe problem.

    Trichorhinophalangeal syndrome type 1 (medical condition): A rare genetic disorder characterized by bulbous nose (748.1), sparse hair ( 704.8) and coning of epiphyses(732.9).

    I would say 759.89 Other specified congenital anomalies. This link is from 2004, but pointed me to the general area:

    It is also known as Langer-Giedion syndrome, but I don't see that in the ICD-9 book either.

    Trichorhinophalangeal syndrome is one of several autosomal deletion syndromes so try 758.39 on for size.
