In the present study Limonia acidissima Groff. ethanolic leaves extract was used for the detection of its antidermatophytic assay. It results broad spectrum of antifungals and antibacterial. Where the antimycotic activity against Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton tonsurans, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Microsporium gypseum, Candida albicans and four Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa were more pronounced. The effective antidermatophytic activity observed against M. gypseum, T. tonsurans,E. coli and B. subtilis. Minimum Inhibitory Concentration of all the test microbes was determined using broth dilution technique. MFC, MBC also standardized. Preliminary Phytochemical tests were carried for the revealing basics antimicrobial responsible molecules of secondary metabolites.
