    Default Sebaceous Hyperplasia

    Can some one advise me on the ICD-9 code for Sebaceous Hyperplasia?

    Thanks

    The definition is:

    Sebaceous Hyperplasia are single or multiple yellowish, irregularly round lesions, well-organized sebaceous structures; they often mimic basal cell carcinoma in appearance.

    Is that what the pathologist came back with?
