This study was carried out to investigate the in-vitro antimicrobial activity of A. leiocarpus extract against clinical isolates performed by cup-plate agar diffusion method in five concentrations (100- 6.25 mg/ml) against 3 Gram negative bacteria: Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Klebsiella pneumonia and 1 Gram positive bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus. The methanolic extract exhibited inhibitory effects against most of the tested microorganisms with zone of inhibition ranging from

The largest inhibition zone were obtained methanolic extract of A. leiocarpus (leaves) against the Gram negative Escherichia coli(21±0.5mm) in 100 mg/ml concentration, comparison with (32 mm) Gentamicin 40 mgc. and Staphylococcus aureus (11 mm) in 100 mg/ml concentration comparison with (35mm) Gentamicin 40mgc. The methanol extract of A. leiocarpus was considered for further exploration of isolation active compounds analysis.
