dx is dictated as intraabdominal abscess NOS. Would I use:

682.9 (Cellulitis and abscess of unspecified sites;Abscess NOS; Cellulitis NOS; Lymphangitis, acute NOS)

or

567.22 (Peritoneal abscess
Abscess (of): abdominopelvic, mesenteric, omentum, peritoneum, retrocecal, subdiaphragmatic, subhepatic, subphrenic)
