    Default Morel Lavallee lesion

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know the appropriate ICD 9 code for this diagnosis? It is an internal degloving injury and I have been unsuccessful finding a code for this.

    729.90 and depending on documentation, you could add a contusion diagnosis as well.
