Greetings from SuperCoder!

 

When we search ICD 10 code for hemiparesis, it instructs us to see “Hemiplegia”. So, code I69.959 is correct. And for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the sinus, code C85.91 is appropriate since type of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is not specified.

 

Please feel free to write if you have any questions.

 

Thanks.
