Background : Pyoderma is a common skin disease in the community. The main cause of pyoderma is Staphylococcus aureus. Pyoderma is closely related to socioeconomic circumstances. Predisposing factors of pyoderma is a lack of hygiene, immune deficiencies, and had no other skin diseases. According to some studies, Pineapple (Ananas comosus) has Bromelain enzymes that can be used to kill bacteria. Purpose : The purpose of this study was to determine the minimum inhibitory levels of fruit extract of pineapple (Ananas comosus) and to determine the level of effectiveness of the extract of pineapple (Ananas comosus) against Staphylococcus aureus of pyoderma caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Methods : This study is an experimental research laboratory. The sample of this study was Staphylococcus aureus derived from pus pyoderma patients. Preliminary tests conducted beforehand to determine levels of minimum inhibitory extract of pineapple. Materials examination of pus from skin lesions of patients pyoderma then performed microscopic examination followed by culturing on Nutrient media. Staphylococcus aureus culture results (+) diluted in sterile 0.9% NaCl solution and the solution was made equal to 0.5 Mc Farland. Then 0.1 cc was taken and dropped into Nutrient medium containing the order for pineapple fruit extract 100%. The number of samples used in this study as many as 30 members / media each group. The media then inserted preformance incubator at 37 ° C for 24h. Then look at the results and determine the effectiveness of pineapple extract. Results : From 30 Nutrient media containing of pineapple extracts 100%, a total of 30 (100%) there was no growth of Staphylococcus aureus. Obtained p = 0.00 (significant) in the chi-square test. Conclusion : pineapple extract 100 % can inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus with 100% effectiveness rate.
