Spinocerebellar disease 334.8 or 334.9?

  1. Default Spinocerebellar disease 334.8 or 334.9?
    Medical Coding Books
    I need advice for coding the following:

    Spinocerebellar disease due to peroneal muscular atrophy

    Can anyone confirm if the proper codes are 356.1, 334.8 or 356.1, 334.9?

    Thanks for your help!

    I would use code 356.1 only. That is what my coding software came up with when I entered spincerebeller disease in the primary branch and chose peroneal muscular atrophy for the secondary branch in the code process.
