Since the patient had a Candidial valvo vaginitis infection during her post-C section period so if we go through index i.e Pregnancy->complicated->vaginitis we get 646.6X codes, also note that if we check the 646 category it is written "Use additional code(s) to further specify complication" so in this case we can take both the codes i.e 646.64 and 112.1 to report this condition.
