The etiological agents of the dermatophytosis can be categorized into one of the three genera: Microsporum, Epidermophyton and Trichophyton and about 20-25% of the world human population is affected with dermatophytosis (Havlickova et al., 2008).
The hexane extract of neem at 500 ug/ml shows 13.14 mm zone of inhibition against Trichophyton, the benzene extract at 500 ug shows 10.68 mm against Trichophyton, ethyl acetate extract at 500 ug shows 9.65 mm against Candida, the methanol extract at 500 ug shows 10.30 mm against Microsporum, and the aqueous extract at 500 ugs shows 12.23 mm against Candida.

Trichophyton rubrum es la causa mas comun de infeccion en el ser humano y por lo tanto de granuloma (4) Otros agentes reportados son Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Trichophyton epilans, Trichophyton violaceum, Microsporum audouinii, Microsporum gypseum, Microsporum ferrugineum, y Microsporum canis (5,6).
We tested six filamentous fungal strains: Trichophyton mentagrophytes ATCC 9538, Microsporum canis ATCC 32903, Microsporum gypseum ATCC 14683, Trichophyton rubrum CCT 5507 URM 1666, Fusarium oxysporum ATCC 48112, and Epidermophyton floccosum CCF-IOC-3757.
In addition, according to the report from University of Wisconsin, Tryptantherin (MOL001808, DL=0.29, 0B=19.3%) used as an antibacterial agent could kill plaster-like ringworm fungus, purple ringworm fungus, red ringworm fungus, microsporum lanosum, microsporum gypseum, and epidermophytonfloccosum, so it identified as the major antimicrobial principle of Radix Isatidis.
