17000 vs. 11055

    Exclamation 17000 vs. 11055
    Medical Coding Books
    Document reads left foot corn/calluse second degree to wart, paved down with adequate cleaning. In the Hx it does read plantar wart.

    Should it be coded as a calluse tx 17000 or plantar wart tx 11055?

    I think it should be 17000 w/ proper icd-9, but I am on the fence about this. Any suggestions?
