There is no code for this. Are you referring to venous embolism and thrombosis of internal jugular veins? If so, that code would be 453.76.

Thank you so much!
No, provider has documented "present" in the physical exam. I am aware that it is a symptom of a condition, unfortunately, the provider did not provide a diagnosis.
