There are many unexplored drugs in Ayurveda which have very good effects in treatment. Kākodumbara is one such plant which plays an important role in the management of many diseases, but not explored much. Often the name kākodumbara gets confused with two varieties- Ficus hispida Linn. and Ficus exasperata Vahl. of family moraceae. On the basis of Ayurvedic literature and experimental studies conducted in various institutes this drug possesses properties like kaphapitta hara, svitrahara etc. A comprehensive review on kākodumbara especially on its pharmacological actions and botanical features will be helpful before starting any research.
