(2022) How To Code Choroidal Nevus ICD 10 – List With Codes & Guidelines

This article will outline the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and the ICD 10 CM code for Choroidal Nevus.

Choroidal Nevus ICD 10 Causes

The Choroidal Nevus ICD 10 is caused by the growth of cells called melanocytes. Melanocytes produce the color of skin, hair and eyes. Melanocytes in the retina can spread in the eye. They can clump into dark spots. These spots are called Nevus.

These events can lead to retinal detachment, flashes of light and vision loss. A choroidal nevus ICD 10 is a leaking fluid that is associated with the growth of abnormal blood vessels.

Choroidal Nevus ICD 10 Symptoms

Choroidal Nevus ICD 10 can be recognized in adulthood as flat, elevated, pigmented, non-pigmented or amelanotic. As it is congenital, it is not often seen in young children. An ophthalmologist can detect nevus during a routine eye examination. Lesions can be detected during routine eye examinations, or an experienced ophthalmologist can apply indirect ophthalmoscopy using tests such as ultrasound, photographic imaging and ocular coherence tomography.

Choroidal Nevus ICD 10 Diagnosis

The ophthalmologist will take photos of the Choroidal Nevus and follow changes in its appearance from visit to visit. Whenever a Nevuss feature is detected, the doctor will follow up with additional tests such as ultrasound scans where high-energy sound waves bounce off the ultrasound on the inner tissues of the eye to create an image of the inner eye. Fluorescence angiography is an examination of blood vessels and blood flow through the eye. Ocular coherence tomography (OC) is an imaging test that uses light waves to detect swelling and fluid in the retinal fluids.

Choroidal Nevus ICD 10 Treatment

Most Choroidal Nevus ICD 10 do not require treatment. However, if they have characteristics that put them at a higher risk of melanoma, they should be regularly examined by a doctor. The doctor documents the characteristics and decides whether the patient needs to be re-examined.
