The objective of this experiment was to determine the effect of acute toxicity of extract of Phylanthus niruri which is shown as the LD50 value on Balb/C mice. Methods: laboratory experimental research by using the Post Test Only Control Group Design. Using 30 male Balb/c mices divided into 1 control group and 4 treatment group, each contain 6 mices. The control group (K) got only NaCl 0,9%, treatment group I (P1) was given a suspension of 5mg/KgBW of extrct of Phyllanthus niruri, the P2 group had 50 mg/KgBW dose its suspension, the P3 group got 500 mg/KgBW and the P4 group was given the highest dose 2000 mg/KgBW. The suspension was given once and orally. Result: the LD50 value of extract of Phyllanthus niruri is 1588,781 mg/KgBW. Significant toxic clinical symptoms were not found in every group of mice.
