    Default AML with CNS involvement

    What is the proper diagnosis codes for AML (acute myelogenous leukemia) with CNS (central nervous system) involvement?

    AML-205.00, (CNS 198.3)??? It's the CNS that I'm iffy on. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The note is as stated in the title.

    Default

    Since the type of CNS involvement is not being specified I would use 349.9 with the 205.00. The CNS involvement could be vomiting, increased CSF pressure, AMS, vision loss, brain hemmorage, seizures, or neurotoxic effects of the treatment itself - unless you know the full history and type of CNS involvement that led to the specific encounter that is the best that you can do!
