Non-specific code 2014 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 345.5
Localization-related (focal) (partial) epilepsy and epileptic syndromes with simple partial seizures
  • Non-Billable Code
  • There are 2 ICD-9-CM codes below 345.5 that define this diagnosis in greater detail. Do not use this code on a reimbursement claim.
Clinical Information
  • A simple partial seizure consisting of clonus or spasm of a muscle or muscle group; it may be single or in a continuous and repetitive series or may spread to adjacent muscles.
  • A subtype of epilepsy characterized by seizures that are consistently provoked by a certain specific stimulus; auditory, visual, and somatosensory stimuli as well as the acts of writing, reading, eating, and decision making are examples of events or activities that may induce seizure activity in affected individuals.

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 345.5 is one of thousands of ICD-9-CM codes used in healthcare. Although ICD-9-CM and CPT codes are largely numeric, they differ in that CPT codes describe medical procedures and services. Can't find a code?
