Thread: icd 9 code - rash

  1. #1

    Default icd 9 code - rash

    how would you code, papulo / vesicular rash on arms/legs?

    Nothing listed under "rash" to assign a more specific code. I used rash, is this correct?

    Thank you

    Default

    I indexed papule which goes to 709.8 and vesicle which goes to 709.8 which is other specified disorders of skin. That is what I would use.
