Does anybody know a definitive code for Morel Levalee lesions? In the index of the ICD-10 coding book, it says to see hematoma, by site. But after reading the definition of this type of lesion, which is a separation between the skin and the underlying fascia, neither hematoma or contusion fully describe it. Is it classified as an open wound or an abrasion? The surgeon coded M99.86, but this seems rather vague. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Teri
