I am looking for diagnosis code for Abscess of lumbar paraspinal muscle. I have looked and can't seem to find anything. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Best I can find so far is M60.08 - Infective myositis, other site

I was led here by the index Abscess > Muscle and it said see Myositis, infective
I then only saw options for extremities so i chose the NEC option

Any chance its a Psoas muscle abscess (K68.12) The Psoas Major muscle's origin is the transverse processes of T12-L5 and the lateral aspects of the discs between them.
