    Question Prolactinoma

    AAPC: Back to School
    Just curious...what code are people using for prolactinoma? I am finding different answers, so I'm unsure what would be the best. The 2 that I am coming across are 253.1 and 227.3.
    Thank you!

    You are right absolutely (with both the codes). But don't you have to give additoinal code to support its functional hyperactivity.
    If a female, the presenting symptoms , like galactorrhea -amenorrhea-meaning prolactinemia and amenorrhea causing ovarian dysfunction(the sites showing the functional activities) would also be coded. Is in it?
    I think coding 258.6 would also be needed
