Lumbar Epidural Hematoma

Nicole Posted Tue 27th of January, 2015 23:07:10 PM

What would be the correct diagnosis code for this.

The dictation does not state a previous injury, so I was not sure if the 852.4_ would still be a correct diagnosis.

Unless it is traumatic, use code 432.0, Nontraumatic extradural hemorrhage.

Please confirm with provider before using epidural hematoma following injury 845.2.

Thanks !!
