This research included isolation of some types of fungi of molds and yeasts from cases of inflammation ofexternal ear canal in human from AL- yarmouk Teaching Hospital, by collection of 50 samples from males andfemales and from different ages during summer season , also 10 samples from non infected cases were taken ascontrol. Also sensitivity test of some isolates against some important antifungal agents which commonly usedin the treatments of infection of external ear canale cases.After
