In the present study we screened extracts of 56 widely used dried Chinese medical plants or their parts (TCD) for their antimycotic properties against pathological phyla of Aspergillus fumigatus, Candida albicans, Geotrichum candidum and Rhodotorula rubra. The highest activity against Aspergillus fumigatus was shown by Carthamus tinctorius L. (flos) and Rheum palmatum L. (radix et rhizoma) and against Candida albicans, Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi (radix) had the highest activity. The highest activity against Geotrichum candidum was shown by Agastache rugosa (Fisch et Mey.) O. Ktze. Herba Menthae has moderate antimycotic properties.
