Default Sebaceous Hyperplasia

Can some one advise me on the ICD-9 code for Sebaceous Hyperplasia?

Thanks

The definition is:

Sebaceous Hyperplasia are single or multiple yellowish, irregularly round lesions, well-organized sebaceous structures; they often mimic basal cell carcinoma in appearance.

Is that what the pathologist came back with?
