Wound healing is a multiplex interaction process that involves extracellular matrix, blood vessels, proteases, cytokines, and chemokine. So far, a number of studies have been performed to understand the basis of the wound-healing process and multiple wound-healing products have been designed. However, significant morbidity and mortality incidents still occurred due to poor wound healing. Thus, there is a dire need to understand the effects of topical applications of various therapeutic options that lead to fast wound healing. Thyroxine is one great panacea for wound healing that has been vigorously mooted throughout the years but a conclusive result regarding its effectiveness is still not achieved. This review is intended to find a rational basis for its positive role in wound healing. To accomplish the objective, this review highlights the different aspects of thyroxine's role in wound healing like keratin synthesis, skin thickening, and pro-angiogenesis, the basis of controversy on its wound healing ability and its potential to be used as a wound healing agent. This study will be helpful for researchers and surgeons to assess the importance of thyroxine as a candidate to comprehensively research to develop a potent, effective, and affordable wound healing drug.
