    I got 211.3 for Gardner's Syndrome, 238.1 for tumor connective tissue (unspecified desmoid tumor), and the only AFP I am familiar with is the test Alpha-Fetoprotein which is a tumor marker. Could the AFP be a test? Hope this helps.

    211.3 is benign neoplasm of the colon (appendix, cecum, ileoccecal valve, large intestine NOS) isn't it?

    The patient has

    1. Gardner's Syndrome - which a genetic disorder characterized by the presence of multiple polyps in the colon together with tumors outside the colon.

    2. A desmoid tumor (sometimes referred to as aggressive fibromatosis) is a rare tumor that may or may not be part of a genetic syndrome such as familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP), in this case it is.

    3. And AFP, which I think the doctor means AFAP - That is what is on the hematology/oncology report - Attenuated Familial Adenomatous polyposis.

    I don think that I would code the AFP separately, I picked 211.3 for Gardners, and 238.1 for Desmoid. Gardner's syndrome has merged into (FAP) and is considered a phenotypic varient of FAP.
