Pressure Ulcer that has cellulitis
Need some advise on which condition would be the Pdx in a scenario that has a patient with a pressure ulcer stage 1, sacrum with cellulitis around the ulcer. Would the Ulcer be Pdx followed by the cellulitis or would the Cellulitis be Pdx? Could not find any coding clinic guidelines for this scenario.
