    Question Uctd

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can Someone Please help? There is a diagnosis of undifferentiated connective tissue disease given on a lab rec. I can't seem to find even an unspecified diagnosis for this. Thank you.

    Based on what I have found I would go with 710.9

    "The term "undifferentiated connective tissue disease" (UCTD) describes patients who have clinical features and laboratory markers that suggest a systemic autoimmune disorder, or connective tissue disease but who lack sufficient characteristics for a well-defined connective tissue disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or scleroderma"

    Thank you
    I was debating about going with that or going to go back and code signs and symptoms if they would provide them.
