The family Dilleniaceae consists of 10-14 genera and about 500 species distributed into four subfamilies. It is taxonomically isolated and it is the sole representative of Dilleniales. Some of its species play an important role in traditional medicine and they have been used for the treatment of various diseases and infections, such as arthritis, diabetes, dysentery, hepatitis, blennorrhagia, and to treat gastrointestinal disorders, inflammation, hemorrhoids, wounds, and leishmanial ulcers…
