    What is your opinion about the diagnosis code to use for lumbar epidural hematoma?

    I'm assuming that this is traumatic... What code(s) are you looking at?

    How about 998.1/998.2?

    I have known these to be non-traumatic...example: coumadin induced.

    It was spontaneous -- he had a sudden onset of pain.
