Thread: Anoxic Encephalitis

    Default Anoxic Encephalitis

    AAPC: Back to School
    Patient is diagnosed with anoxic encephalitis. Would 323.81 other causes of encephalitis and encephalomyelitis be the correct code? Another code I was unsure about is 348.1 anoxic brain damage.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    348.1 would be the correct code to use
