Search for naturally occurring compounds with antifungal activity has become quite intense due to the side effects of synthetic fungicides and the development of pathogens against such fungicides. Hence screening of various Siddha drugs for their antifungal activity against various strains of Candida albicans  was considered worthwhile. Seven such Siddha drugs were screened for their antifungal activity against fourteen strains of Candida albicans . The results indicate that the drugs Nandhi mezhugu, Vaan mezhugu, Erasa Kenthi mezhugu and Parangi pattai choornam possessed significant antifungal activity against various strains of C.albicans .
