In this case the antimicrobial or antifungal effects of this plant are suspected as having important role. This study aims to examine the comparative effectiveness of the 50% celery extract (Apium graveolens) with 2% ketoconazole in vitro on the growth of Malassezia sp. in dandruff. Method: This research was done by using an experimental study. The samples were 30 (+) Malassezia sp. inoculated in SDA . The result of the culture (+) are diluted in sterile solution of 0.9% NaCl and its turbidity is made equal with 0.5 McFarland solution, then 0.1 cc was taken and cultivated in medium of SDA olive oil that contained 50% celery extract and medium of SDA olive oil that contained 2% ketoconazole. Then the medium was entered in an incubator at temperature of 370C for 3 days. The data were analyzed using chi square test with degree of significance of p<0,05. Result: 30 media of olive oil SDA that contained 50% celery extract, 3 were stated as (+) that revealed growth of Malassezia sp. and 27 was stated as (-) that revealed no growth of Malassezia sp.. Whereas from 30 media of SDA olive oil that contained 2% ketoconazole, 2 were stated as (+) that revealed growth of Malassezia sp. and 28 were stated as (-) that revealed no growth of Malassezia sp. The fisher test is not significant, p=1,00 (p>0,05). Conclusion: 50% Celery extract has same effective in compared with ketoconazole 2% in retarding the growth of Malassezia sp. in dandruff.
