The American Medical Association (AMA) Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes listed, are provided for informational purposes only. The codes reflect our interpretation of CPT/HCPCS coding requirements based upon AMA guidelines published annually. CPT/HCPCS codes are provided only as guidance to assist clients with billing. Baylor Genetics strongly recommends that clients confirm CPT/HCPCS codes with their Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) or other payer being billed, as requirements may differ. CPT coding is the sole responsibility of the billing party. Baylor Genetics assumes no responsibility for billing errors due to reliance on the CPT codes listed. Please direct any questions regarding CPT coding to the payer being billed.

Incontinentia Pigmenti Common Deletion Analysis
Test Information: Confirmation of Clinical Diagnosis, Confirmation of Clinical Diagnosis - Known Familial Mutation(s), Carrier Testing - Known Familial Mutation(s)
Test Details
Test Code: 6036
Special Notes: Approximately 80% of IP patients were shown to carry a common deletion mutation that removes exons 4 through 10 of the IKBKG (NEMO) gene. Southern analysis for the common IKBKG (NEMO) gene deletion is performed with an exon 2 probe and a genomic HindIII restriction digest. This assay detects an 8kb deletion junction fragment and a normal 12kb band. This diagnostic strategy was designed to avoid potential complications due to the presence of a IKBKG (NEMO) pseudogene downstream. Unusual phenotypes (such as IP in a male) should be discussed in advance.
