We receive nail clippings for pathology review. We perform a GMS stain for fungus and we use 88312 for the stain, what would the cpt for the procedure for the nail clippings?

1) Example: Nail Clippings,right hallux:
- Onychomycosis

Clinical indications/history: thick,discolored nail.

2) Example: Toenail, Left Hallux, Biopsy:
- Hyperkeratotic nail with bacterial colonization

Clinical indications/history: thick painful nail.

This has been an ongoing debate in our office and I would like a definitive answer to our question.

Thank you for your help
