MP/H Rules/Histology--Kidney: What is the correct code for 'cyst associated renal cell carcinoma', 'cystic renal cell carcinoma', and 'cystic renal cell carcinoma, clear cell type'? See discussion.
This is a repeat of the histology coding question 20031008. I would like to know the correct histology code for these terms under the 2007 MP/H rules. The answer in 2003 was 8316 -- cyst associated renal cell carcinoma. We are seeing cases with these descriptions coded 8316, 8310, 8312, and 8255. What is currently correct?
Use rule H5 and assign code 8316/3 for cyst associated renal cell carcinoma, cystic renal cell carcinoma. Use rule H6 and assign code 8255 for cystic renal cell carcinoma, clear cell type.
