Abstract:
Piptadeniastrum africanum Hook (Fabaceae) was selected in an ethnobotanical survey carried out in the Haut-Sassandra Region (Côte d'Ivoire) for its frequency of use against skin superinfections. The aqueous, ethanolic and residual extracts obtained from the powders of the bark allowed to evaluate the antifungal activity on a clinical strain of Trichophyton mentagrophytes. The three extracts (ethanolic, aqueous and residual) showed inhibitory activity with Minimum Fungicidal Concentration (MFC) between 0.195 mg / mL and 12.5 mg / mL.
