Physiologic Phimosis

  1. Default Physiologic Phimosis
    Medical Coding Books
    For a routine, newborn circumcision, my doctors document the reason for the circ as "physiologic phimosis" and select N47.1 as the diagnosis. However, there's no tightening or constricting of the foreskin and no past infection. Just the normal shared membrane that fuses the foreskin to the glans. Would ICD-10 Z41.2 Encounter for routine & ritual circumcision be the correct choice in this situation?? Or is there more details for code N47.0 that I can't find? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
