The occurrence of fungal diseases is a serious problem of the present medicine because of the development of drug resistance against the antifungal activities in the pathogen. As compared to antibacterial antibiotics, there are only a few antibiotics which are used against fungal infection besides there is a serious problem of the development of resistance in fungal pathogen against the known antifungals, hence there seems a great demand of some alternative chemotherapeutic agent. The possibility of getting certain active principle in plants are immense, earlier workers have shown the presence of antifungal activity in various plants of varied nature suggest that the search for antifungal of plant origin should continue to explore their potential.
