Clinical Information
  • Dysfunction of the urinary bladder due to disease of the central or peripheral nervous system pathways involved in the control of micturition.
  • Dysfunction of the urinary bladder due to disease of the central or peripheral nervous system pathways involved in the control of urination. This is often associated with spinal cord diseases, but may also be caused by brain diseases or peripheral nerve diseases.
  • Malfunctioning urinary bladder due to central nervous system disorders or damage to the peripheral nerves that are involved in the control of urination. Causes include spinal cord injuries, neural tube defects, brain tumors, strokes, and peripheral neuropathies (e.g., aids neuropathy and diabetic neuropathy).

ICD-9-CM codes are used in medical billing and coding to describe diseases, injuries, symptoms and conditions. ICD-9-CM 596.54 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?
