    Default Cameron Ulcers Dx ICD 9 code help!

    Hello,

    The patient has iron-deficiency anemia, GERD, and Cameron's ulcers. Are the ulcers just coded under ulcer, stomach??? I cannot specifically find Cameron under ulcer or under Cameron.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    that is how I would do it, this type of ulcer is often seen in conjunction with GERD and iron defeciency anemia but as far as I know there is no specific code for it.
