    What ICD-9 would you use for this? 336.0?

    That is exactly the correct code. I had the same question last month. A syrinx is a syringomyelia. If you work for a facility and use 3M encoder, you get nothing if you type syrinx... So I had to ask my nurse/guru supervisor. She was perplexed as to why the encoder would not take "syrinx"...

    Hope this helps.
