    Default ? dx on OB US

    AAPC: Back to School
    We performed 76805 on a patient.

    Clinical indication: Pt gives history of prior US at an outside institution which revealed a choroid plexus cyst.

    Impression: choroid plexus cyst which was reportedly seen on prior OB US has resolved.

    Not sure what the most appropriate dx code would be? Help!!

    Thank u:-)

    Look at 655.83 or 655.93. (I'm assuming the cyst was seen on the fetus.) I vote for 655.83...

    Look at:
    655.03 Known or suspected CNS malformation and
    V89.03 Suspected fetal abnormality not found
