Removal of foreign body

Anca Posted Tue 08th of May, 2012 18:45:24 PM

A child had a caterpillar in their mouth and the surgeon had to remove hundreds of the caterpillar spines. I was thinking about 40805. Anyone have a different code that we can use? Thanks

Very Unusual. But I believe 40805 is correct for the given scenario.

Thank you, it was a very unusual case.
