    Question Hair tourniquet
    Clearnace Sale
    Does anyone know of a diagnosis for hair tourniquet?? Thanks:d

    There's an E code
    E928.4 - external constriction caused by hair.

    For the injury, I think you just code "superficial Injury" of whatever body 917.8 if it was a toe injury.

    Hope that helps...
