Results: Methanol extract of Buxus walliachiana ointment (5 %) showed a significant reduction in the wound area from 10th day to 20th day of the experiment and 10 % produced dose depended reduction in the wound area. Nitrofurazolidine ointment (2 %) was used as standard. Methanol extract of Buxus walliachiana ointment 10 % showed significant reduction in wound area when all results were compared with standard.
