Diagnosis help

Minerva Posted Wed 18th of May, 2011 14:29:10 PM

I need help trying to figure out what diagnosis code to use for enhancing pineal.

There are two sets of code under consideration:
259.8:Other specified endocrine disorders that includes:-Pineal gland dysfunction,Progeria,Werner's syndrome
239.7: Endocrine glands and other parts of nervous system that includes:-"growth" NOS;neoplasm NOS;new growth NOS;tumor NOS
From the above data, it is easily imperative that we should use 239.7
