Question
Histology--Heme & Lymphoid Neoplasms: What is the correct code for follicular lymphoma grade 1-2? It looks like a grade 1 is higher than a grade 2. I read a recent article where grade 1-2 is a new grade.

Discussion


Answer
Code to Follicular Lymphoma, grade 2, histology 9691/3. For follicular lymphoma, when there is a grade such as 1-2, take the higher grade, even though the grade 1 histology code is higher.
