    Default excision of hidradenitis of scalp

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know the CPT for an exision of a hidradenitis of scalp with complex closure. The only thing I come up with is for inguinal, or perianal,perineal/umbilical. Is there one for the scalp? Please help me!!

    I can't find anything specific to hidradenitis of scalp either so I would consider a benign lesion excision of the scalp code billed in addition to an intermediate or complex closure of scalp.

    Hope that helps!
