Clinical fungi were isolated from the blood samples of immunocompromised patients from Subhash Chandra Medical College Jabalpur in SDA with chloramphenicol @ 30μg/ml.the common isolates were Candida albicans, Aspergillus fumigatus, A. glaucus, A.terreus, A. niger, A. flavus, Penicillium sps. and Curvularia sps. The isolates were then subjected to in vitro susceptibility testing against different antifungals viz Amphotericin B, Ketocaonazole, itraconazole, clotrimazoleand fluconazole and also against natural herbs like neem, tulsi, garlic ginger, aloevra, turmeric etc by DDM method. Ketocaonazole was found to be highly effective amongst all antifungals and garlic was most effective amongst all natural antifungals.
