Adenoma with mild dysplasia

    Should a colon polyp with a DX of tubular adenoma with mild dysplasia; be coded 211.3 or 235.2? We are having an intra-office disagreement on this.

    I would use the 2113. The dysplasia means abnormal tissue development so I woul think that the polyp description would suffice for that. Just my two cents...
