    I'm not 100% positive, but I think you would code the esophagitis (530.11) with the herpes simplex infection (054.8 or 054.9) since it is herpes simplex that causes herpetic esophagitis.

    Hi Prem,

    The code for Herpetic esophagitis would be 530.10,054.79.

    B'coz 530.10 says Esophagitis(alkaline)(chemical)(chronic)(infectional)(necrotic)... in alphabetic index.
