The ICD-10-CM code N90.810 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like female genital cutting, female genital mutilation or history of female genital mutilation.

The code N90.810 is applicable to female patients only. It is clinically and virtually impossible to use this code on a non-female patient.

Unspecified diagnosis codes like N90.810 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
