Mātuluṅga (मातुलुङ्ग) is a Sanskrit word referring to the “Citron”, a species of citrus fruit from the Rutaceae family of flowering plants. It is also known as Mātuliṅga or Mātuliṅgī. It is used throughout Āyurvedic literature such as the Caraka-saṃhitā and the Suśruta-saṃhitā. The official botanical name is Citrus medica.

This plant (Mātuluṅga) is also mentioned as a medicine used for the treatment of all major fevers, as described in the Jvaracikitsā (or “the treatment of fever”) which forms the first chapter of the Sanskrit work called Mādhavacikitsā. In this work, the plant is also known by the name Bijapuraka.
