The traditional systems of medicine have always been considered as priceless tank of new bio-active molecules with immense medicinal and pharmacological importance. Most of the traditional systems are based on use of plant as medicine, but now day’s use of different medicinal plant is neglected because of lack of scientific data and proofs committing their medicinal importance. Through this study we have proved the anthelmintic activity of one Indian medicinal plant Bauhinia tomentosa family Caesalpiniaceae. The anthelmintic activity was evaluated by using common method of Ajaiyeoba with some minor modification against two worms Pheritema postuma, family Megascolecidae and Ascaris lumbricoides, family Ascarididae. Our in vitro study concludes that plant Bauhinia tomentosa possesses good anthelmintic activity, so it is recommended to consider Bauhinia tomentosa and other such plant of traditional systems seriously and must be tested for in-vivo activity so as to prove and promote their beneficial use in small ruminants.
