    Question Diagnosis code for hair wrapped around toe?

    AAPC: Back to School
    How would you code the ICD-9 for a child who was seen due to hair wrapped around their toe?

    This one is sorta tough since nothing else was provided. Was there any symptoms....swelling? discoloration of skin? If there is a sign/symptom, I would use that as primary and E928.4 as secondary.
