Exodontia is a routine procedure carried out in Dentistry. The most common outcome of extraction is the uneventful healing of the extraction wound, with a very few exceptions of improper or incomplete healing estimated to be about 1.0 to 11.5%.  To name a few complications like haemorrhage, pain, discharge, foul odour usually, whereas uncommonly we can see acute alveolar osteitis, trismus, bone dehiscence and rarely hypertrophied clot. We report a rare case of a massive postoperative clot formation mimicking a fast enlarging neoplasm after tooth extraction and a highlight on the various oral complications of surgical procedures.

Keywords: Exodontia, Post-operative complication, Exophytic lesion, Hypertrophic clot, Vascular lesion, Pyogenic granuloma, Tumour.
