Abstract The screening of the antimicrobial activity of 33 medicinal plants from Senegal is reported. None of these plants showed activity against the gram-negative test bacteria and against Candida albicans. Extracts of Cnestis ferruginea and Voacanga africana showed strong activity against Aspergillus niger. The former plant was also active against dermatophytes. Twenty-five of the plants tested showed activity against gram-positive bacteria.
