    AAPC: Back to School
    What CPT code would you use for this case scenerio: Patient has multiple small pinpoint white papules on his neck, some have an unbilicated center very consistent with molluscum. THe leasions of his neck were prepped w/alchohol and I deroofed them with an 18 gauge needle and was able to remove the pearly white center of lesion. Triple antibiotic ointment & bandiad applied to the 10 lesions. Diagnosis was molluscum contagiosum to the neck.

    Default destruction of molluscum contagiosum

    I believe you would use 17110, destruction of benign lesions other than skin tags, up to 14 lesions
