Atypical meningioma who grades....please help!! Newbie....

Best answers

Hope everyone had a great holiday!

I need help regarding Atypical Meningioma- WHO Grade benign or not benign.

Do I code as Malignant for Grade 2-3 ? C71 Vs. D32.

Most of the pathology reports that I have come across show WHO Grade 2-3 as benign however, the report also shows the area being malignant. The hospital coders will code the report as benign for WHO Grade 2-3.

If the pathology shows as Malignant, then I would have to code the malignancy correct ?

sorry if this confusing!! I'm new to rad/onc coding

thank you.
