Standard codes for neuralgia

Hello everyone!

I would like to convert M79.2 Neuralgia and nueritis, unspecified (Athena) to standard code. However, I have realized that the ICD-10 version maps to Neuralgia while ICD-10-CM billing code maps to Disorder of hand. To me, the former mapping makes more sense, however, I would be happy if you could advise me on the decision behind the mapping of the ICD-10-CM code.

Thanks a lot.

You’re right.
Currently we’re working on the update of ICD10CM and we’ll fix this as well.
the release is expected next week or so. You can subscribe to this page https://github.com/OHDSI/Vocabulary-v5.0/releases/ to get notified about the OMOP vocabulary releases.

Thanks a lot! I will keep an eye out for the updates.
