Authors(2) :-A. R. Dhole, V. C. Yeligar

Urolithiasis (UL) is one of the most common diseases, with worldwide increasing incidence and prevalence. In India, in the Ayurvedic system of medicine, 'Pashanabheda' group plants, claimed to be useful in the treatment of urinary stones. 'Pashanabheda' is the Sanskrit term used for a group of plants with diuretic and antiurolithiatic activities (Pashana = stone; Bheda = break). Hence, in the present review an attempt has been made to enumerate the studies of plants Cessampelous pareira linn, B. Sensitivum linn , Fragaria vesca linn used for antiurolithiasis. This could serve as a source of information on the present trends in research on plants accredited with antiurolithiatic activity.
