    Under the diagnosis category N76 you are to use a secondary code of B95-B97....If results are known that there is no infection using vaginitis or vulvitis is there a diagnosis code in a category that states noninfectious or no infection found? I can't seem to locate one with that type of wording. Thanks for your help

    For non-infectious condition of vaginitis or vulvitis, Use ICD-10 code N76 (Other inflammation of vagina and vulva).

    B95-B97, are additional codes to identify the infectious agent. There is no specific ICD-10 code for non-infectious or no infection found. So, for non-infectious condition, appropriate code would be N76.
