Since the advent of modern drug treatments, traditional medicine has greatly receded in occidental societies. Moreover, only a limited number of medicinal plants have received detailed scientific scrutiny; thereby prompting the World Health Organisation to recommend that this area be comprehensively investigated. In the present study, the alcoholic extract of leaves of C. fistula showed antimicrobial activity against S. aureus, P. aeruginosa, E. coli and Group A. strep, some common human pathogens.The bioassay guided isolated compound showed MBC values ranged from 4 mg/mL-8 mg/mL and MIC values ranged from 1 mg/mL-2 mg/mL.
