Polyneuropathy is an inflammatory reaction in the nervous system in this case to an infection elsewhere in the body. In SWE it has property 01M99 ‘Other disorders of the nervous system’ whereas the others have 01M09 ‘Infections except viral meningitis’.

G6300 is a asterisk code. It is probably only rarely used.

Both models are understandable, but the mapping codes must have same diagnosis category.

Technical change

Replace 01M99 with 01M09 in SWE for G6300

DRG change

Few cases with G6300 as principal dx are assigned to DRG 020 instead of DRG 034/035 as conservative inpatients.
