Type 2 Excludes
Type 2 Excludes Help
A type 2 excludes note represents "not included here". A type 2 excludes note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition it is excluded from but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When a type 2 excludes note appears under a code it is acceptable to use both the code (S02.1) and the excluded code together.

Clinical Information
  • Fractures which extend through the base of the skull, usually involving the petrous bone. Battle's sign (characterized by skin discoloration due to extravasation of blood into the subcutaneous tissue behind the ear and over the mastoid process), cranial neuropathies, traumatic; carotid-cavernous sinus fistula; and cerebrospinal fluid otorrhea are relatively frequent sequelae of this condition. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p876)
