Among the vulvovaginal infections, the second prevalent infection is vulvovaginal candidiasis which is created due to abnormal growth of Candida species in genital system of the women. Equisetum arvense is regarded as an effective drug in treatment of wounds. Quercus has been also used for treatment of many diseases. This study investigated 152 patients suspicious of vulvovaginal candidiasis. Seventy-five isolates were identified from 152 isolates of Candida albicans, and 55 yeast isolates were identified as non-albicans (Candida krusei, Candida glabrata, and Candida tropicalis), and 22 yeast isolates were unidentified. In broth microdilution method, MIC 50 was reported as 12.5 μl/ml in Candida albicans for Equisetum arvense and Quercus, and MFC was reported as 25 μl/ml for both plants. In this research, isolation of Candida albicans species is more than that of non-albicans species.
