Description

Acute transverse myelitis ICD-10 codelist for use with hospital and mortality data

Codelist aims to be specific rather than sensitive, and to describe acute transverse myelitis occuring on its own rather than myelitis as part of a broader disease process such as encephalomyelitis or ADEM. Does not include codes which are not specific to acute transverse myelitis, e.g. such as 'Encephalitis, myelitis and encephalomyelitis'.

Methodology

Search and strategy documented on Github here https://github.com/opensafely/codelist-development/issues/135

Note The Brighton collaboration definition of acute myelitis additionally includes G37.9 described as 'Myelitis, transverse' in the Brighton template, but not included here as it is defined as 'Demyelinating disease of central nervous system, unspecified' in the WHO ICD-10 browser (2019)

Codelists are developed by a broad community of users for individual study purposes, which may or may not meet the needs of other studies. They should not be thought of as universal definitions of a particular condition.

We don't offer any guarantees about what they do or don't identify. Users should carefully check that any codelist meets their needs, and seek clinical input where appropriate.
