Disease of the Skin and Subcutaneous Tissues



This module will provide you with an overview of the anatomy of the Integumentary System and the diseases that may affect the skin and subcutaneous tissue. ICD-10-CM contains codes for pressure ulcers in much more detail as they are combination codes.
