    Question Need a diagnosis code for ipmn
    Exam Training Packages
    Does anyone have diagnosis codes for IPMN? I have searched and searched and am not having any luck? I know it stands for Intraductal Papillary Mucinous Neoplasm, but that's as far as I've been able to get.

    Thanks,

    Michele

    Is it of the pancreas? If so, intra ductal papilloma of pancreas codes to: 211.6 - benign neoplasm of pancreas, except Islets of Langerhans

    Hope this helps.

    This one was malignant, but they don't know primary, secondary or in-situ, so I was looking at 239.0. What do you think?
