    Default ? strangulation of toe
    Medical Coding Books
    Hi all!
    What do you use for a dx for a strangulation of an infant's toe by a wraparound hair?
    Nothing seems to really fit, I am using a superficial injury code.
    Thanks for the input!

    I've used the superficial injury code as primary, with "E928.4--external constriction caused by hair" as secondary.

    Thanks, Jen, this is what I use also. Just checking to see what else may be out there.
