    Default Focal nodular hyperplasia of the liver

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a physician billing focal nodular hyperplasia and per the x ray report it is of the liver. I was looking at the dx 239.0 or 751.60. Can anyone help and what the correct diagnosis would be Thanks,

    Since it is documetned as focal nodular I would suggest 751.69 "other anomalies" instead of the 751.60 "unspecified anomaly".
