The purpose of this review is to provide an update and comprehensive information on the phytochemistry and pharmacological research of Dehaasia species in order to explore their therapeutic potential and evaluate future research opportunities. All the available information on Dehaasia species was actualized systematically by searching the scientific literatures databases such as PubMed, SciFinder, Web of Science, and Google Scholar. From the data collected in this review, the genus Dehaasia has attracted much attention due to their richness in alkaloids with various bioactivities, and it comprises a wide range of therapeutically promising plants.
