    Look under neoplasms. You didn't state the site or where it was located? That would help. Is the patient male or female?

    Thanks for your replies. Definitive answer from American Academy of Derm is 216.x. Sometimes derm coding drives me nuts, it's just so general. So often, everything ends up in one bucket. There are days I wish I picked a different specialty, but then I think of OB coding and I cheerfully resume coding rashes and skin ulcers. Thanks again for the help.
