Neoplasm of uncertain behavior of connective and other soft tissue (approximate match)

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code D48.2 and a single ICD9 code, 238.1 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
