This study aimed to collect ethnobotanical data from traditional healers about, medicinal plants used in Hauts-Bassins area from Burkina Faso to manage the urinary tract infections. An ethnobotanical survey was undertaken during April-September 2018; and using a semi-structured open questionnaire. The authentication of species was done using Catalogue des plantes vasculaires du Burkina Faso. To determine well-known families and species, some indices such as family importance value (FIV) and relative frequency of citation (RFC) were calculated respectively. Forty-five (23 men and 22 women) traditional healers participated in this study. The majority of interviewees were aged between 41 to 60 years (48.9 %) and have identified at least two of urinary infections symptoms (67 %). Twenty-seven plant species belonging to 25 genera and 19 families were recorded to treat the urinary disorders. The most represented families were Fabaceae followed by Euphorbiaceae. The most used species were Euphorbia hirta L. and Terminalia avicennioides Guill. and Perr. The leaves (40 %) and the roots (32 %) were the most commonly used organs. The decoction (75 %) was the main remedies preparation. These data might contribute to reinforce the Burkina Faso ethnopharmacological database through the traditional healer knowledges and practices of the urinary infections management in the Hauts-Bassins area.
