Turmeric is commonly used as a household antiseptic for wounds due to its anti-inflammatory properties. But the use of such compounds can interfere in the histopathological diagnosis of tissue samples. We present a case of a 53-year-old man with a forehead growth with a history of repeated episodes of bleeding which on microscopic examination, presented with bluish structures. On enquiry, the patient admitted to the application of turmeric. On processing turmeric and examining it microscopically, it appeared similar to the bluish structures as in the sections of the growth. Therefore, the final impression was made to be lobular capillary haemangioma with turmeric artefact. Hence the local use of such chemicals can confuse and lead to the wrong diagnosis. Therefore, this case indicates the need to identify artefacts for adequate histopathological diagnosis.
