Cassia occidentalis is a shrub prevalent in tropical and subtropical areas with diuretic, antipyretic, antioxidant, hepatoprotective and antimicrobial properties. A wide variety of phytochemical components are detectable in parts of C. occidentalis, especially in its leaves. Extracts based on this plant are widely used in Africa and Asia to treat diseases and have been added to Western medicines. Some toxic effects, mainly by compounds present in the seeds, are reported. The objective of this study is to expose the botanical and pharmacological aspects of C. occidentalis, through a bibliographic review in scientific works published since 2009. From the revisionary study carried out, it is found that C. occidentalis is a major highlight among medicinal plants showing a pharmacological potential.
