    Default Chiari I Malformation ICD-9 Code

    AAPC: Back to School
    All I can come up with a dx code for Chiari I Malformation is 741.00. Does anyone have any other/better suggestions. This is on an 80 year old woman. Thanks for your input.

    Default my guess is for type 1 348.4

    and the icd leads you directly to the dx.
