This article presents an identity based pharmacognostical study of the leaf and stem of Sisymbrium officinale (Brassicaceae). Morphoanatomy of the leaf were studied to aid pharmacognostical and taxonomical identification, using light and confocal microscopy. The morphological, anatomical parameters and Physico-chemical profile presented in this paper may be proposed as parameters to establish the authenticity of S. officinale and can possibly help to differentiate the drug from its other related species.
