EOD Mets


**Note 1:** A physician’s statement of positive (malignant) pleural effusion or a positive cytology confirming a malignant pleural effusion must be used to code 05. * If the physician feels the pleural effusion is due to tumor, despite negative cytology, the physician’s assessment can be used to code EOD Mets * If pleural fluid cytology is described as suspicious/suspicious for mesothelioma, code 05 * A positive pleural effusion (code 05) should not be coded as present under the Mets at Dx-Other field. Code 0 for Mets at Dx-Other when code 05 is coded in EOD Mets. **Note 2:** In addition to EOD Mets, the following data item is also collected to determine the results of the Pleural Effusion, which include negative, atypical, or Pleural effusion, NOS * Pleural effusion [NAACCR Data Item #3913] **Note 3:** If there is a malignant pleural effusion WITH other mets, code 70.
