    Default ICD-9 Help!

    AAPC: Back to School
    Gerota's fascia necrosis without involvement of an atrophic right kidney and spesis. Await cultures from urine; His blood cultures are growing gram-negative rods so far.

    So I just need help with the first part; GEROTA FASCIA NECROSIS?? In other words the tissue around the kidney is dead, is there a code for that?

    How about 728.86 - necrotizing fasciitis?? It's not specific to location.
