726.65: Prepatellar bursitis
The question is we can go for a "septic" prepatellar bursitis, when if the the doctor had excised the bursa for a culture and sensitivity study, and the findings confirm of the type of infection, for if the findings suggest bacterial infection, you can additionally code 041.89
