    Default mucosa erythematous? diagnosis?

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have an op report for an endoscopy with the following diagnosis:

    Esophagitis, Hiatus hernia, Mild gastritis & The mucosa appeared non-erosive and erythematous?

    So I came up with 530.11, 553.3, 535.10 (bcuz path. report states chronic gastritis) and 569.89 for the mucosa erythematous, but not sure about this one?

    For erythmatous mucosa in the stomache.... I'd go with 535.50
