HX of breech birth

This is a good one! The only thing I could come up with is Birth, Injury, so maybe P15.9? Somewhere in there. If there are any signs/symptoms of the hips/limbs I'd code that first. Hope this helps!

What if this was a 2 year old coming in for possible hip dysplasia and the mother notes that the child was a breech birth?

Peace

Are they looking because the baby has some sort of deformity? Why was the baby brought in? If they are just assuming or suspect that there is an injury, you cannot code that.
