Patient fell and had left knee contusion. Her kneecap became numb, tingles; she has hypersensitivity in an area about the size of her patella. Doctor thinks she has sort of a grade 1 or 2 neurapraxia of the prepatellar nerves. As the swelling goes down and the nerves recover, she will feel better. The dx codes for her are left knee osteoarthritis, left prepatellar neurapraxia. What is the correct dx code for left prepatellar neurapraxia? Thank you.

Thank you for your question,
The correct ICD-10 code for prepatellar neurapraxia will be G64.
Feel free to ask for any further query.
