superficial abrasion of soft palate

Regina Posted Mon 16th of April, 2012 13:19:52 PM

Superficial abrasion of soft palate without mention of infection. Would 919.0 be correct code for this diagnosis?

ABRASION term in ICD-9 index asks to check under INJURY > SUPERFICIAL > BY SITE.
If you check accordingly, Injury > Superficial > Palate (soft) leads to 910 . In category 910, the only code that matches is 910.8.
