Doll Syndrome
« on: August 11, 2011, 12:17:48 PM »
Hello,

Does anyone know of a diagnosis code that could be used for Doll Syndrome?  I tried finding one in the ICD 9 code book, but I couldn't find one.

Thanks :)

I am not even finding that in the medical dictionary, upon doing a google I do notice there's an "urban" diagnosis..more like a phony dx code for someone who becomes entranced with television, video games..etc. I'm guessing it's not a legit diagnosis and your provider will need to give you something a little more legit?  Unless it's another illness I'm just not finding.

I found Bobble-head doll syndrome consistently coded as Cerebral cysts: 348.0 on ICD-9 and G93 on ICD-10.  Maybe you can look at that.
