    Any suggestions for an ICD 9 code for subcutaneous fatty atrophy; patient aquired this from multiple injections. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Default subcutaneous fatty atrophy icd 9

    701.9 would describe the subcutaneous atrophy...however if atrophy due to injection then the proper icd 9 code would be 999.9
