The goal of the present study was to evaluate the antibacterial and antifungal of the crude extract/fractions of Crataegus songarica against six bacterial and fungal strains. The extract/fractions demonstrated significant susceptibility against tested bacteria namely Escherchia coli, Bacillus subtilis and Shigella flexeneri illustrated the most susceptibility were with MICs 150 µg/mL, 390 µg/mL and 220 µg/mL respectively. Meanwhile Antifungal activity was also recorded table and the crude

Based on the obtained results, C. songarica could be considered a new natural healing agent for the treatment of various infectious diseases.
