Intralesional Immunotherapy for warts

    Question Intralesional Immunotherapy for warts
    Medical Coding Books
    I am trying to figure out how to properly code for immunotherapy of warts. Candida and Trichophyton were injected directly into the warts.
    I am questioning the use of 95117, 95125, 11900, or 17110. I don't think it would constitute the destruction of lesions, but is it really an allergy immunotherapy, or simply an intralesional injection?

    Much thanks for any help

    It is not treating an allergy it is treating a wart, use 11900.

    Which codes did you use for the Candida and the Trichophyton?

    We use the unlisted code J3490 with misc. text indicating the antigen used.
