The physician poked a pustule on the shin with a needle and there was a small amount of purulent drainage. I want to use 10060 and another coder says to use 10140. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Tessa,

Thank you for your response. The facility where I work requires the physician and facility coder to match. I do not always agree and do not ever win the argument.
