Seborrheic dermatitis

    Question Seborrheic dermatitis
    Medical Coding Books
    Hello,

    Can anyone suggest the ICD 9 code for seborrheic dermatitis in an infant? Some of the coders are assigning it as seborrheic dermatitis infantile. I want to confirm whether this infantile refers to the age or the type of dermatitis.

    Thanks in advance,
    Preema.

    I would code 690.12 because is pertaining to an infant or to infancy.

    Hope this helps!!

    Thank you Noraz.

    Again I have one concern. If so please confirm whether dermatitis NOS in an infant can be coded to 690.12.

    The answer is yes; I use the Encoder Pro Professional and when I search for "dermatitis infant" it leads me to the 690.12; also the index on the ICD9 book under "dermatitis infantile" leads you to the same code.

    hope this helps!!!

    690.12 is correct.
