The anthelmintic activity of different extracts of nuts of Semecarpus anacardium  were evaluated separately on adult Indian earthworm (Pheritima posthuma).  It was found that petroleum ether, chloroform extract of S. anacardium  (PESA and CESA, respectively) showed better anthelmintic activities than ethanol (EESA) and aqueous (AESA) extract of it. The anthelmintic effects of PESA and CESA at 10 mg/ml and EESA at 20 mg/ml concentration are comparable to that of the effects produced by the reference standards, albendazole (10 mg/ml) and piperazine citrate (10 mg/ml).
