Stasis dermatitis diagnosis code

Kathy Posted Mon 09th of December, 2013 11:15:24 AM

What diagnosis code would be appropriate for stasis dermatitis (rash of lower legs) in the setting of psoriasis and without documentation of varicose veins? Diagnosis code 454.1 doesn't seem appropriate.

Code 454.1 first and psoriasis 696.1 second.
