I was looking at 357.3 for chemotherapy induced neuropathy, but I believe the neuropathy is being caused from the chemotherapy, not the malignancy. Is anyone aware of a better code for this diagnosis?
Thanks.

If the physician states that the patient has "chemo induced neuropathy" I think the 357.6 with the additional E code would be more appropriate. The 357.3 code doesn't mention the fact that it's "chemo(drug) incuded neuropathy", just neuropathy in a malignant disease.
