New Duchenne/Becker ICD Code in Effect Today — G71.01


Today at 12:01 AM  – while most of us were sound asleep – the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) code for Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophy changed. 

Previously, Duchenne muscular dystrophy was classified among a broad category or diagnoses in the standard International Classification of Diseases (ICD).

In 2016, PPMD convened key federal agency and clinical partners to support the development of a nomination to expand the current classification category (ICD10 G71.0) to enable specific identification of Duchenne/Becker muscular dystrophy.
