xantheloma eyelid I & D
« on: July 05, 2012, 10:35:15 PM »
Trying to figure out a cpt code when my physician performed an I & D on a xantheloma of the eyelid.  She used an #11 blade and made a small incision and then expressed the contents with some gauze.  I have looked in the skin section (10040 etc) and none really seem to fit and have looke in the incision/drainage in the eyelid section - none really seem to fit.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
