incomplete circumcision

  1. Default incomplete circumcision

    we had a pt come in with an incomplete circumcision. we are going to repair this, but we can't come up with a definitive dx. can anyone help?

    when I check the cross coder for 54163, the only three dx that came up were 605, v50.1, v50.2. I guess the other option would be maybe a scar related dx or perhaps an anomaly??

    thanks, i didn't think about anomaly...sometimes i try to make things more complicated than they really are.

    Usually when I receive these cases to code, it is due to redundant foresekin (which would fall to 605) or balanitis (607.1).
    If your OP does not show anything definitive, I would go with V50.2
