Icd-9 code - I need opinions on how to code

  1. Default Icd-9 code - I need opinions on how to code
    Medical Coding Books
    I need opinions on how to code a diagnosis of POORLY DIFFERENTIATED CARCINOMA OF UNKNOWN PRIMARY. My thinking was to code as 199.1 which is for unknown site or unspecified primary or secondary.

    Thanks,

    Cindy
