Title: Antimicrobial Activity of some Sudanese Plants against Mycetoma Causing Agents with emphasis on Prosopis chilensisplant
Author: Abdalla, Fatima
Abstract: Mycetoma is a chronic granulomatous disease of subcutaneous and deep tissue. Progressive destruction of tissue leads to loss of function of the affected site. The pathogens are found in the soil as saprophytes, inoculated through the skin by minor cuts or scratches by thorn orsplinter wounds. Mycetoma infection is caused by true fungi (eumycetoma) or by higher bacteria of the class actinomycetes (actinomycetoma). The incidence of mycetoma in Sudan has not changed; around 400 new cases are seen in hospitals and outpatient clinics every year. Treatment of Eumycetoma infection is difficult and the rateof recurrence after surgery is high in spite of medical treatment in combination with surgery. The quest for effective medical treatment was therefore actively persued.
