Genital Warts

    I am looking for a CPT this is what is documented "In her perineum she has a genital wart which was treated with liquid nitrogen today measuring 1-2mm." She also had a Pap and was in for a preventative visit. Any help will be appreciated.

    Look at Destruction of lesion 56501. See if that is appropriate to meet your documentation.
    Hope this helps.

    I agree with Christine and it would be called "cryosurgery"

    I dont think that 56501 covers perineum lesion destruction, it is for vulva and as per CDR (coders desk ref.) it can cover perianal area not perineum.
    i believe better option is 17110.
