Thread: DX for pilar cyst?

  1. #1

    Default DX for pilar cyst?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is 706.2 correct?

    Pilar; Pilary means concerning (or covered with) hair. In researching this I think the diagnosis you have chosen is closest to pilar cyst ( in the sebaceous) cyst family.
    But I am anxious to hear if anyone found a different dx.

    The Correct Dx for Pilar Cyst is 704.8. This is the one we are using and never had a wrong feedback.

    Thank You
