    Red face DES exposure - I am looking for a diagnosis

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for a diagnosis code for DES exposure. This patient is currently pregnant. Her mother received DES while she was pregnant with her. Any ideas. We've used V15.89 in the past but wondering if there is a more appropriate code. Thanks!
