In vitro susceptibility testing of seven species of dermatophytes in microcuoltures with a standardized, fragmented mycelial inoculum was carried out using the aqueous extracts of the leaves of cassia alata Linn and Lawsonia alba Lam used in native medicine for ringworm infections. The results were compared with the minimal inhibitory concentrations of griseofulvin and imidazoles, miconazole nitrate (Janssen Pharmaceutica) and econoazole base (Cilag - Chemie). Significant anti-fungal activity was found in the extracts.
