Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder characterized by abnormal keratinocyte hyperproliferation. Herbal formulations have been used for decades due to its enhanced activity and lesser side effects for psoriasis treatment. India has a very long, safe and continuous usage of many herbal drugs in the alternative system of health like Ayurveda, yoga, unani, siddha, homeopathy and naturopathy. Millions of Indians use herbal drugs regularly, as spices, home-remedies, health foods etc. Even allopathic system of medicine has adopted a number of plant derived drugs. Plants possess many of the chemical substances with potential therapeutical and pharmacological effects for treatment of many diseases. So there is a need to investigate antipsoriatic herbal drugs for the better patient acceptance. Our study is mainly focused to establish up to date literature on recent ethnomedicinal uses with phytochemical review of two different medicinal plants, i.e., Wrightia tinctoria Roxb and Cassia fistula Linn and these herbs have been selected on the basis of traditional system and scientific justification with modern methods.
