Crude extracts from leaves of Albizia lebbeck Benth showed significant antimicrobial effect. Among different extracts, a methanolic extract of A. lebbeck showed highest zone of inhibition. The order of antifungal activity, expressed as minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of Methanol > Ethyl acetate > Petroleum ether observed for fungal strains tested. Methanol and ethyl acetate extracts exhibited significant antimicrobial activity than petroleum ether extract and may be suggested for use as natural antibiotic administration for the fungal diseases.
