Résumé : The revision of the genus Vitex L. in Cameroon is presented. Sixteen taxa are accepted in Cameroon (15 species, 1 variety). One new variety is described (V. gabunensis var. daubyi). Three species are new to the flora of the country (V. ciliata, V. gabunensis, V. oxycuspis). Five new synonyms are proposed. Lectotypes are designated for V. grandifolia, V. bipindensis and V. zenkeri. In the current state of knowledge, two taxa are endemic to Cameroon (V. lokundjensis, V. yaundensis) and one taxon is a near-endemic, just extending to Nigeria (V. bogalensis). Two names remain unplaced because no original material has been found.
