The presented communication constitutes a review on antiurolithiatic effect of four hundred and fifty seven (457) plants belonging to one hundred and eight (108) families found in different parts of the world. This review will provide useful information for the discovery of natural antiurolitiatic compounds and fill the gaps in knowledge.
