    Everything I have referenced leads back to 845.00.

    Peroneal is pertaining to the fibula or to the outer side of the leg or shank; fibular; I would look into the DX series of 844.XX

    Need to know if traumatic first, if not, look at 727.68. Most peroneal traumatic injuries occur in the ankle and foot area rather than the calf.
