    Hello,

    I am desperately looking for a dx. code for 3 weeks old baby with pneumoperitoneum.

    thank you so much,
    Niki

  2. Default Newborn pneumoperitoneum
    Hi,

    I didn't find any direct reference to this condition but with no confirmed NEC or other cause of the pneumoperitoneum, I would look to P96.89, Other specified conditions originating in the perinatal period, and K66.8, other specified disorders of the peritoneum.
