Psoriasis is a common skin disease which is characterized by plaques and patches on the skin. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that involves T helper cells in the pathogenesis of the disease. Treatment of psoriasis is long term and not completely cures the disease. Plants have been extensively used in the treatment of different diseases so plants with anti-psoriatic activity have also been investigated. Results showed that Polypodium Decumanum, Wrightia Tinctoria, Cassia Tora and Givotia Rottleriformis Griff have significant activity in relieving symptoms of psoriasis.
