"CORNEA VERTICILLATA SECONDARY TO AMIODARONE INTAKE"

SuperCoder Answered Mon 05th of August, 2013 19:31:08 PM

Cornea verticillata is also called vortex or whorl keratopathy. Amiodarone is typically given for cardiac arrhythmias. Assuming this is an adverse reaction (rather than poisoning), check 371.40 (Corneal degeneration unspecified) and E942.0 (Cardiac rhythm regulators causing adverse effects in therapeutic use).
