Genus Atropa is medicinally important as it has anticholinergic, antispasmodic, and antidote, anodyne, analgesic, hallucinogenic, Parkinsonism, encephalitis, carcinoma, and spastic dysmenorrhoea, mydriatic, narcotic and sedative. A large number of bioactive compounds have so been far isolated from Atropa. This emphasizes on the need for the review of literature for reporting the additional information on the medicinal importance of other species of genus Atropa.
