You will find the correct code in the perinatal section of ICD10: P04.8 Newborn affected by other maternal noxious substances (which includes DES) . This is because the patient was exposed to DES via the placenta while in utero and there is no time-limit for use of this code. Per the tablular listing the P codes include: conditions that have their origin in the fetal or perinatal period (before birth through the first 28 days after birth) even if morbidity occurs later. The ICD9 code for DES exposure was 760.76 (Noxious influences affecting fetus or newborn via placenta or breast milk; Diethylstillbestrol (DES)) and this code was converted to P04.8 in ICD10.
