An EGD was performed and the "distal esophagus biopsy result was CHRONIC CARDITIS". All the dx that I see for this description are heart related...and this is an upper GI procedure...what DX would you use for this scenario...I'm inclined to use 530.89... but I would like to hear some feedback on this:confused:
