In 2002, I asked the Chicago Manual of Style the following question. I received the following reply.

Q: Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary spells “catch-22” as such; but doesn’t the Chicago Manual of Style recommend spelling-out numbers this low?

A: This would be a certain exception: the title of Joseph Heller’s novel was Catch-22, not Catch-Twenty-two.
