DX code for axillary cyst

  1. Default DX code for axillary cyst
    Medical Coding Books
    I am having trouble finding the isc-9 code for axillary infected cyst, any suggestions on how to search for this code?

  2. Default
    Once a cyst becomes infected, it is then an abscess, so I would look under Abscess (axillary) and capture icd 9 code 682.3. Hope this helped.
