Thread: Sclerotherapy of hemangioma

    Default Sclerotherapy of hemangioma

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone help with a CPT code for sclerotherapy of a hemangioma in the forearm?

  2. #2


    I think an unlisted (37799) is the best way to go with this.

    What about CPT code 17106?

  4. #4


    17106 sounds like a laser treatment, sclerotherapy is an injection.

    You're right. I didn't look close enough at the definition of destruction for this specific code. I just hate to go with an unlisted code...

    I know, I don't like unlisted either.
