Hello Selina,

Thank you for your question.

 

Yes, ICD-10 CM code D12.6 (Benign neoplasm of colon, unspecified) will be appropriate for Serrated Polyposis Syndrome.

 

Serrated Polyposis Syndrome is a rare condition that is characterized by serrated polyps in the colon and/or rectum. Serrated polyps are a type of growth that stick out from the surface of the colon or rectum.

 

Thanks
