Abstract

Methanolic leaf extracts of Eucalyptus camaldulensis   check for this species in other resources were investigated for in vitro antifungal activities against Microsporum canis   check for this species in other resources , Microsporum gypseum   check for this species in other resources , Tricophyton rubrum   check for this species in other resources , Tricophyton schoenleinii   check for this species in other resources , Tricophyton mentagrophytes   check for this species in other resources and Epedermophyton floccosum   check for this species in other resources . The studies were carried out using broth dilu-tion method, agar dilution method and inhibitory zone estimation. The effects of the plant extract were compared with those of griseofulvin. Eucalyptus camaldulensis showed antifungal activity against all the dermatophytes tested with MIC values ranging from 0.4 to 1.6 mg/mL using inhibitory zone estimation, 0.4-1.6 mg/mL using agar dilution method and 0.2 to 1.6 mg/mL using broth dilution method. The mini-mum fungicidal concentration (MFC) of the extracts ranged from 0.8 to 6.4 mg/mL. The results obtained suggest that E. Camaldulensis has anti-dermatophyte activity.
