The mangrove habitats get food and wide variety of traditional products and artifacts from mangroves. Extracts from different
mangrove plants are reported to possess diverse medicinal properties such as antibacterial. Suaeda monoica is annual herb
adapted to saline soil and lives in salt marshes or arid saline soil. Amaranthaceae family includes about (1300) species worldwide
range from annual herbs to trees. The leaves contain triterpenoid, saponins, coumarins, phenolic compounds and alkaloids.
The leaf of S. monoica is known to use as a medicine for hepatitis and scientifically it is reported to be used as ointment for
wounds and possess antiviral activity, because of the presence of triterpenoids and sterols, antidiabetic and toothache. This
study was aimed to identify antidermatophytic effects of cold and hot aqueous extracts of S. monoica against Microsprum
gallina, M. gypsum, M. canis, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, T. vercossum, Epidermophyton floccosum, Candida albicans
and C. tropicalis in vitro. Dry weight and disk agar diffusion MIC test of fungi were used to determine antidermatophytic. The
results of our experiment indicate that, aqueous extracts of S. monoica have a high effective against M. gallina, M. gypsum, M.
canis, T. mentagrophytes, T. vercossum, E. floccosum while low effective against C. albicans and C. tropicalis. The cold extract of
S. monoica has a higher inhibition with concentrations (10 and 15 ml), whereas the hot extract has more effective than cold
extract against tested fungi. The MIS values of hot extract showed the highest antifungal activity against M. gallina, M. gypsum,
M. canis, T. mentagrophytes, T. vercossum, E. floccosum. Thus, this study recommended that S. monoica can be used to treat skin
infections. There have also been some chemical tests that confirm the effect of these extracts on pathogenic fungi.
