Is there a code for a toenail injury? All I can find is superficial injury of toe, however, the patient's toe was not injured. It is simply nail trauma due to the toe being stepped on. It is not a contusion and there is no laceration.

Thanks in advance!

Toe nail and nail bed are part of the toe. If the most specific body location is toe then code to the toe.
