Abstract: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disorder, characterized by symmetrical, erosive synovitis, and in some cases, extra articular involvement. In early onset of disease analgesics and anti inflammatory drugs are used in modern medicine. While in late stages, therapeutic strategy is related to lowering generalized immunity by corticosteroids or by cytotoxic drugs. These drugs provide symptomatic relief but did not have any significant effect on the underlying disease process. In addition, they caused a fair degree of side effects. Amongst several useful herbal drugs, Colchicum luteum is one, which is claimed to be effective in this ailment. On an average the oral use of Colchicum luteum showed benefits in 82.4% cases in 90 days without any side effect.
