    Default dx code for verrucous keratosis, inflamed

    Good Morning,

    I am questioning myself on this dx, the biopsy report states the dx is verrucous keratosis, inflamed. My question is that i am looking under keratosis but cannot locate verrucous, I see inflamed but its under seborrheic which i don't think i want to us because its notg seborrheic. My second choice was looking under verrucous but only comes up with endocarditis which i know is not correct.

    Can anyone help guide me in the right direction was my first assumption correct I come up with 701.1

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I agree with your assumption that 701.1 is correct. It would be the "Default" since your adjective is not listed. : )
