Botanicals and herbal preparations for medicinal purpose contain various types of bioactive compounds. Colocasia esculenta commonly known as taro belonging to family Araceae are herbaceous perennial plants with a large corm on or just below the ground surface. Continuous research have revealed many chemical constituents isolated from this plant to exhibit several biological activities such as antimicrobial activity, fever, anti-inflammatory, stomach disorder, conjunctivitis, and loss of appetite for children. The present study aims at studying the anti urolithiatic activity of methanolic and chloroform extracts of the leaves of Colocasia esculenta using artificial kidney membrane. From the above study, it was found that it does show the urolithiatic study.
