MG30.60 Chronic secondary orofacial pain

International Classification of Diseases for Mortality and Morbidity Statistics, 11th Revision, v2020-09

Chronic secondary orofacial pain comprises orofacial pain disorders that have a clear underlying cause and that occur on at least 50% of the days during at least three months. Pain duration (untreated) is variable ranging from hours to several shorter attacks per day.

coding note

Each distinct type, subtype or subform of orofacial pain must be separately diagnosed and coded. When there is more than one diagnosis, these should be listed in the order of significance and importance to the patient. Most chronic orofacial pain disorders can also be found in the chapter “Diseases of the nervous system”. If the orofacial pain disorder is the primary diagnosis of the patient, the code of the neurological chapter should be used. Otherwise, both codes can be used.
