Subj: Multiple Ratings under Former 38 C.F.R. § 4.71a, Diagnostic Code 5285 (2003)

To: Chairman, Board of Veterans’ Appeals (01)


Does former 38 C.F.R. § 4.71a, Diagnostic Code (DC) 5285 (2003), authorize a single 10-percent additional disability rating based on demonstrable deformity of a vertebral body, or does DC 5285 permit multiple 10-percent additional ratings for multiple deformed vertebrae?
