    What ICD-9 CM would be used for a pregnant mother who has a fetus that has "intrauterine growth retardation"?

    764.90 states it is "never for use on the materal record so I figure it should be a code from category 655 "known or suspected fetal abnormality affecting management of mother" or category 656 " other known or suspected fetal and placental problems affecting management of mother".

    656.53 Poor fetal growth, affecting management of mother, antepartum

  3. #3


    I think the correct code is 656.53...
