The success of a periapical surgery is assessed by regeneration of functional periradicular tissues. The regenerative potential of platelets has been utilized in periradicular surgeries. The purpose of this case report is to add knowledge to the existing literature about the use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in the treatment of periapical lesion. A periapical endodontic surgery was performed on a 35-years-old male patient with a discoloration of 11. Open apex and bony defect were present radiologically with 11. Retrograde filling with mineral trioxide aggregate was done. The surgical defect was filled with PRF membrane and sutured. Follow-up was done after 8 weeks and 8 months. The present case report concluded that PRF can be recommended as an alternative to bone grafts and membranes in periapical lesions to enhance bone regeneration and to decrease the healing time.
