Traditionally, leaves are used in the treatment of skin disease and fever. It is an effective hepatoprotective agent. In present study the aqueous extract of a Alternantera sessilis has been subjected to GC-MS analysis. As a result of analysis of many constituents were found to be present in the Alternantera sessilis leaf extract. The major chemical constituent is 17a-Acetoxy-1,1-dicarboethoxy-1a,2a-dihydro-17a-methyl-3H-cycloprop[1,2]-5a-androst-1-en-3-one.
