    New Call-to-action
    Fellow Coders,

    I have a question regarding coding peripheral neuropathy. A patient has neuropathy due to chemo/radiation (oral cancer). A provider used 356.9 code.

    Do you think 356.9 is appropriate in this case? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    Hello, I think 357.6 would be appropriate for this case. If the Chemotherapy drug is known then you can apply the appropriate E-code. Hope this helps!!!
