In the present study, the medicinal plant Hygrophila auriculata was selected and the screening of the qualitative and quantitative of phytochemicals. The phytochemical profiles were estimated through the Gas chromatography-Mass spectrophotometer, which containing twenty compounds were listed out. The antimicrobial activity of the methanolic extract of the entire plant was studied against five selected bacterial and five selected fungal pathogens using well diffusion method. The results revealed that the methanolic extract of Hygrophila auriculata possessed alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenoids and various other phytochemicals. The extract showed antimicrobial activity against Aspergillus niger, Escherichia coli, and Klebsiella pneumoniae with a range of 8-16 mm zone of diameter, This study gives a new route to discovery of new drug for the control of microorganisms.
