    You code the poisoning code from the 9xx.xx codes first then the symptoms if any and then the E code for accidental poisoning by substance.

    Thanks that's what i was thinking

    I am the radiologist coder and there are no symptoms its simply says:

    "HISTORY: Ingested furniture oil

    FINDINGS: Lungs are clear. Pulmonary vascular flow is normal. The cardiothymic silhouette is normal. Bony thorax is normal.

    IMPRESSION: Normal chest."

    The only dx i can come up w/ is: 989.89
