Thread: Muir-Torre Syndrome?

    Talking Muir-Torre Syndrome?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good morning everyone!

    I have a chart here where the patient is having an EGD done due to high risk of cancer, because they have Muir-Torre syndrome. I can't find an ICD-9 code for this! Anyone know what it might be?

    Thanks in advance!

    Definition: Muir-Torre Syndrome (MTS) is a sebaceous adenoma skin tumor with internal malignancy. Muir-Torre syndrome is a variant of hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC). People with Muir-Torre syndrome have an increased risk of the types of cancer seen in HNPCC, including colorectal, endometrial (uterine), stomach, ovarian, small bowel (intestinal), urinary tract, and hepatobiliary (liver or bile duct) tract cancers.

    More info. needed: Is the MTS primary, benign? Location of MTS? Is this a screening only b/c of the high-risk?
