    Default Subdural hygroma
    Hello,

    When looking up hygroma, subdural in ICD-9 we were directed to hematoma, subdural. I would recommend going to hematoma, subdural in ICD-10 and coding according to your documentation. You will need to code this with further specification based on whether this was traumatic or nontraumatic. There is also a different code used if this is a newborn & you will see that listed under the main code in the index if it applies to your report.
    Thanks, Jill
