Thread: Vaginal necrosis

    Default Vaginal necrosis

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am looking for the best ICD-9 code for vaginal necrosis. I code for radiation oncology and necrosis is a side-effect of radiation therapy. Yes, I can use the 990 for the effects of radiation therapy; but I need the code for necrosis of the vagina.
    Can anyone help me with this?

    Maybe take a look at 623.8 and see if that would work
