Öz Background: The aim of this study is to determine the antifungal activity of different parts like leaf, flower and root extracts of Aerva lanata (L.).Material and Methods: The antifungal activity of different solvents like acetone, aqueous, benzene and ethylacetate extracts of A. lanata against Candida parapsilosis, Aspergillus flavus, Trichosporon asahii and Mucor indicus was studied by agar well diffusion method.Results: Benzene extract of leaf of A. lanata showed maximum zone of inhibition against Aspergillus flavus. The benzene extract of flower showed antifungal activity against Trichosporon asahii. The acetone extract of root showed antifungal activity against Candida parapsilosis, Aspergillus flavus, Trichosporon asahii and Mucor indicus. Conclusion: The best antifungal activity was observed in all solvent extracts of root of A. lanata against selected fungal species such as Candida parapsilosis, Aspergillus flavus, Trichosporon asahii and Mucor indicus, when compared with leaf and flower extracts. In future, there is in need of study to isolate and purify the active phytocompounds, which possess antifungal activity against above mentioned fungal species and it may be useful in the treatment of fungal diseases.
