    The effect of petroleum ether and methanol extract of stem bark of Helicteres isora was investigated in five different fungus i.e. Cryptococcus neoformans, Candida tropicalis, Trychophyton rubrum, Microsporum furfure, Epidermophyton floccosum to evaluate the antifungal activity. For this evaluation Sabouraud’s glucose broth media was used. All the two extracts exhibited antifungal activity.
