ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code:
733.20 Cyst of bone (localized), unspecified
In this situation, the unspecified code is selected since the available information fails to reveal the specific type of bone lesion. To provide a more specific diagnosis code, you will have to verify the diagnosis with the pathology report and/or the surgeon.
CPT® Procedure Code:
27637 Excision or curettage of bone cyst or benign tumor, tibia or fibula; with autograft (includes obtaining graft)
In this situation, the bone graft is not reported separately as the graft is clearly included in the code descriptor for the primary procedure. When tissue is transplanted from one part of the body to another in the same individual, it is an autograft, as opposed to an allograft, which refers to a transplant of tissue from one person to another.
