Postoperative bleeding is one of the common complications encountered in dental practice after routine dental extractions. Preoperative assessment of the patient is an integral aspect of managing and delivering dental care effectively to a patient. However, a patient with unknown and previously undiagnosed systemic illness can further complicate the treatment and result in defective hemostasis postextraction. We report a rare case of a 23-year-old male, who was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia following uncontrolled hemorrhage postsimple dental extraction procedure.
