Our present communication deals with pharmacognostical and preliminary phytochemical studies on the leaf of Ficus retusa, which is used in folklore uses of Mandsaur. No reports are available on macroscopical and microscopical and phytochemical studies, hence, the present attempt was undertaken to investigate the macroscopical, microscopical and phytochemical studies. The study revealed the presences of wide range of phytoconstituents like sterols, terpenoids, glycoside, flavonoids, polyphenols, proteins, and carbohydrates.
