Vulvar skin tag

  1. Default Vulvar skin tag
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone have any ideal how to code a vulvar skin tag? Op note states "An elliptical incision was made with a cold knife and the specimen was removed in toto and a few separate sutures of 3-0 vicryl are used to close the skin".

    I thought maybe 11422, but it states except skin tags (unless listed elsewhere). The vulvar skin tag is 1.5 cm

    Please help! i appreciate any info.

  2. Default
    If confirmed as a skin tag I would look at 11200

    Simple repair is a Mutually Exclusive to 11200

  3. Default
    sutures were also used. Does that not matter?

  4. Default
    That would be part of the simple repair which is included
