Abstract: ygomycetes are saprophytic filamentous fungi that are abundant in soil and decaying matter. They cause severe infections in immunocompromised persons with very high mortality rates of 75-95%. The antifungal drugs in clinical use are associated with severe adverse effects and are not affordable due to their high prices. This calls for a search of antifungal drugs that are affordable, easily accessible and effective against Zygomycetes. Callistemon citrinus which is a cosmopolitan plant has been reported to have antimicrobial properties and might be able to offer a solution.
