Of these complications, the most common is postoperative hemorrhage. The hemorrhage can be classified into primary, intermediate and secondary hemorrhage. Normally after periodontal flap surgery, the bleeding will stop post operatively which is stopped by primary wound closure. This case discusses a rare complication after periodontal flap surgical procedure called as “currant jelly” or “liver clot” and its management.
