    Default Brain Injury DX

    Anyone out there know what the DX would be for Brain Injury secondary to
    Primitive Neuroectodermal Brain Tumor & Surgical Removal? Client is now experienceing seizures. Would this be a late effect code I would be using? Your input is greatly appreciated. Thanks

    My first instinct was to look at...Damage---->brain---->348.9---->997.01 (during or resulting from a procedure).

    I'm sure there will be many other opinions...
