    This review contains a compendium of medicinal plants in Africa that can control or cure tuberculosis.

    A good number of plant secondary metabolites are reported to have antitubercular activity comparable

    to the existing antitubercular drugs or sometimes even better. Information regarding the chemistry and

    pharmacology of plants leads to insight into their structure–activity relationship and potency. A welldefi

    ned strategy is required to exploit these phytomolecules as antitubercular drugs.
