Hi list, can someone please tell me how to code super glue in the eyes? 63 year old pt came in with accidentally putting super glue in his eyes he thought they were his eye drops, having hard time with dx but mostly with the Ecodes, the only one I could get was E9241 but when I looked up super glue it said it wasn't a caustic and/or corrsive so please help with both..thank you for any and all help..alice

The only thing I find that comes close is E866.6 which is an accidental poisoning code, but poison is not limited to oral ingestion. E924.1 is a Hot Substance code so it would not be correct.

Yes I agree I am sorry if I misled, I was only addressing the E code I should have addressed the entire issue. My apologies if my answer was not clear.
