          This section includes symptoms, signs, abnormal results of laboratory or other
          investigative procedures, and ill-defined conditions regarding which no
          diagnosis classifiable elsewhere is recorded.
          Signs and symptoms that point rather definitely to a given diagnosis are
          assigned to some category in the preceding part of the classification. In
          general, categories 780-796 include the more ill-defined conditions and
          symptoms that point with perhaps equal suspicion to two or more diseases or to

          The conditions and signs or symptoms included in categories 780-796 consist
          of: (a) cases for which no more specific diagnosis can be made even after all
          facts bearing on the case have been investigated; (b) signs or symptoms
          existing at the time of initial encounter that proved to be transient and
          whose causes could not be determined; (c) provisional diagnoses in a patient
          who failed to return for further investigation or care; (d) cases referred
          elsewhere for investigation or treatment before the diagnosis was made; (e)
          cases in which a more precise diagnosis was not available for any other
          reason; (f) certain symptoms which represent important problems in medical
          care and which it might be desired to classify in addition to a known cause.
