looking for dx code

    Question looking for dx code
    New Call-to-action
    One of my providers is asking for a diagnosis code for paroxysmal kinesogenic dyskinesia and paroxysmal non-kinesogenic dyskinesia. The only code I can find is 781.3 which is just dyskinesia. Any suggestions. Thanks in advance.

    Default dyskinesia coding
    333.5 is paroxysmal choreo-athetosis (PKD)which should fit the first disease process. Paroxysmal Nonkinesiogenic Dyskinesia (PNKD)...I'll have to get back to you on that one.

    Default another code
    For PNKD I would use 333.2.
