Abstract:  The paper provides a brief account of 29 plants from 24 families used by the Mbo community of Nkongsamba, Cameroon, as traditional herbal medicines, in the treatment of asthma. Many of the plant species claimed to be remedies against asthma by the population are highly effective when compared with the published literature on ethnomedicine or on pharmacology in different regions of Africa. Two plants (Cannabis sativa and Datura metel) are dangerous in the case of overdose and one (Persea americana) contra-indicated in pregnancy.
