PFAPA Do you know this code?

  1. Default PFAPA Do you know this code?
    Medical Coding Books
    Stands for:
    Periodic
    Fever
    Aphthous stomatitis
    Pharyngitis
    Adenitis

    I've searched, but can't find anything regarding ICD-9...I'm ready to resort to the individual ICD-9s for the conditions rather than a single one for the disease...anyone have this issue previously?

    Thanks!
    Hope S.
