    Hi Darlene,

    Below given are the codes for brain injury NOS since there is no code for traumatic brain injury. Since nothing was mentioned about loss of consciousness i'm pasting the whole series for you to choose from.


    854.00 Intracranial injury of other and unspecified nature, without mention of open intracranial wound, unspecified state of consciousness

    854.01 Intracranial injury of other and unspecified nature, without mention of open intracranial wound, no loss of consciousness

    854.02 Intracranial injury of other and unspecified nature, without mention of open intracranial wound, brief (less than 1 hour) loss of consciousness

    854.03 Intracranial injury of other and unspecified nature, without mention of open intracranial wound, moderate (1-24 hours) loss of consciousness

    854.04 Intracranial injury of other and unspecified nature, without mention of open intracranial wound, prolonged (more than 24 hours) loss of consciousness and return to pre-existing conscious level

    854.05 Intracranial injury of other and unspecified nature, without mention of open intracranial wound, prolonged (more than 24 hours) loss of consciousness, without return to pre-existing conscious level

    854.06 Intracranial injury of other and unspecified nature, without mention of open intracranial wound, loss of consciousness of unspecified duration
