Medical records have an important role in the diagnosis and planning treatment modalities of periodontal diseases. Surgical periodontal procedures can pose severe complications if the underlying systemic condition is not recorded. To substantiate this, we present a rare case of afibrinogenemia that was reported to the Department of Periodontics, Narayana Dental College, Nellore, India. The present case report gives details of fibrinogen disorder and the dental management of such cases.
