ICD-9 Dx code for bronchiosinusitis?

    Default ICD-9 Dx code for bronchiosinusitis?
    Exam Training Packages
    We have some providers in our convenient care setting using the medical term "bronchiosinusitis". I did not see an ICD-9 code for this particular term. Should I split this out and code bronchiolitis and sinusitis, or even possibly bronchitis and sinusitis? Any suggestions?

    Default Bronchiosinusitis
    Hi there,

    I would choose either 473.8 or 461.8 depending on if the diagnosis is chronic or acute.

    I could not find a diagnosis by the description of bronchiosinusitis either, but these 2 should word, as they are NEC.

    Hope this helps,
