Seems like that should be an easy question with a simple answer doesn't it?  But if that were the case you wouldn't be asking on this forum.  :)

Anyway, there is no icd code that contains the description "Verrucous Keratosis"  however after researching it I find that most people use 702.19 for verrucous keratosis.  They state that the histologic differential diagnosis of seborrheic keratoses includes verruca vulgari.  So I would use 702.19.
