We examine the antibacterial activity of Mangifera indica.L against the drug resistant bacterial pathogens. The Indian traditional mango fruit exposed promise in the prevention of diarrhea. However, there is less information existing regarding activity against drug resistance bacteria causing diarrhea. In this study, we performed isolation and identification of bacterial pathogens from diarrheal stool samples and analyzed their antibiotic resistance pattern with three generation antibiotics. Antibiotic activity of mango kernel exhibited remarkable activity from 15.2±0.5mm to 19.0±0.3mm zone of inhibition. MIC of kernel extract was noted as 10 μg /ml. Current study provide the potent antibacterial activity of mango kernel against the drug resistant bacteria. In conclusion, the traditional Indian fruit become the natural remedy for the treatment of diarrhea.
