Basil is one of the many traditional medicinal plants which use by communities as medicinal plants and culinary herbs.Vulvovaginalis candidiasis is a genital infection in women, cause a lot of complaints and discomfort, ketoconazole is standard antifungal that often used in the treatment of this infection. This study aims to compare the basil leaf extract with 2% ketoconazole in inhibiting in vitro growth of Candida sp. on Vulvovaginalis candidiasis. Methods : This study is an experimental research laboratory with post test only control group design. The sample consisted of 30 cultures of Candida sp.(+) on Sabouraud Dextrose Agar (SDA) medium from patients of vaginal candidiasis based on clinical finding and gram staining. The colonies of Candida sp. were diluted in o,9% NaCl to make the solution equal to 0,5 Mc Farland, then 0,1 cc of it was taken and cultivated into SDA medium containing extracts of basil leaves 50% and SDA containing ketoconazole 2%. The media were incubated at 37oC for 24-48 hours. Data obtained by looking at the growth of colonies of candida sp. on both types of media. Data analysis using the chi-square with degrees of significance p ≤ 0,05. Result : on 30 SDA medium containing extracts of basil leaves 50%, there are 2 tubes of Candida sp.(+), whereas in 30 tubes os 2% ketoconazole medium contained 8 tubes of candida sp.(+). The result of chi-square test was significant p = 0,038. Conclusion : Basil leaves extracts (Ocimum basilicum L) inhibited in vitro growth of Candida sp. better than 2% ketoconazole in vulvovaginalis candidiasis.
