Mantle cell lymphoma

    ​​I'm trying to code an out patient operative report for a Colonoscopy with removal of a polyp.  The path report came back as Mantle Cell Lymphoma.  I'm assuming this would make the polyp cancerous and coded as C83.19.  Is this correct?  Any help would be appreciated.

    ​You are correct Jeri, C83.19 would be the ICD-10 to use 'Mantle cell lymphoma, extranodal and solid organ sites'.

    Hi, Jeri
    I agree with your choice of C83.19 for the polyp found to be mantle cell lymphoma.
