Hello, Is D12.6 the correct IDD-10 code for Serrated Polyposis Syndrome (previously hyperplastic polyposis syndrome)? Thank you!

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.
