Question and answer
What is the difference between the code for a soft tissue abscess in the Musculoskeletal System subsection and the codes for abscess in the Integumentary System subsection? Answer The code in the Musculoskeletal System subsection is used only when the abscess is in the bone. The code in the Musculoskeletal System subsection is associated with deep tissue possibly to the bone. The code in
the Musculoskeletal System subsection does not require debridement of the abscess. The code in the Integumentary System subsection may include the bone.
The codes in the Musculoskeletal System are mostly biopsies of deep subcutaneous tissue and the codes in the Integumentary System are of subcutaneous tissues and skin. [ ]
