    Default Leukuria

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have been getting a couple diagnosis from Dr's referring to "Luekuria". I am curious what others have coded this as. Would you just use abnormal findings in urine, Casts and cells in urine? Thanks very much for your help.

    The code I want to use is 791.7 Casts and cells in urine. Since leukuria, to me, means white blood cells in the urine. Any thoughts?

    Only because of God, my father, and Jesus Christ,
    did I make it into this field so smoothly. Thank you God!
