Abstract

Holarrhena antidysenterica Wall. is an important plant employed in various indigenous systems of medicine against several diseases, and almost every part of the plant has diverse medicinal properties. The current communication provides a detailed account of the pharmacognostic investigation carried out on H. antidysenterica. The study includes macro- and micromorphological characters of leaf, quantitative leaf microscopy, fluorescence study of powder, physicochemical studies and preliminary phytochemical aspects. The results of the study could be useful in setting some diagnostic indices for the identification and preparation of a monograph of the plant.
