Abstract:

Leaf extracts of Schizozygia coffaeoides were investigated gor antifungal activity using the disc diffusion essay technique. Petroleum ether 40o-60o C, dichloromethane-ethyl acetate (1:1) and methanol extracts were fungitoxic to Trichophyton mentagrphytes, Microsporum hypseum, Cladosporium cucumerinum and Candida albicans. The extracts were fungistatic in action.
