Abstract

The essential oil and the aqueous, hexane and methanolic fractions from Hyptis ovalifolia check for this species in other resources leaves were evaluated for their antifungal activity in vitro against 60 strains of dermatophytes: 10 strains of Microsporum canis check for this species in other resources , 10 of M. gypseum, 20 of Trichophyton rubrum check for this species in other resources and 20 of T. mentagrophytes. The extracts inhibited growth of the dermatophytes tested at different concentrations. The most biologically active was the essential oil from the leaves which inhibited 57 isolates (95%) at a concentration of ≤ 500 μg/ml.
