Streptococcus pyogenes is a gram-positive extracellular bacteria. S. pyogenes can cause skin and upper respiratory tract infections that lead to certain complications such as rheumatic fever, impetigo, scarlet fever, and glomerulonephritis. Nowadays, increasing development of antibiotic resistance is being addressed as one of the most important and challenging medical issues. The use of medicinal plants to treat diseases dates back to thousands of years ago. The aim of the current review is to report medicinal plants with antibacterial effects against S. pyogenes. To achieve this purpose, bacterium, Streptococcus pyogenes, and medicinal plants were used as search terms to retrieve relevant publications from the Institute for Scientific Information of Web of Science, PubMed, Scopus, Google Scholar, and ScienceDirect. According to the findings, 82 medicinal plants were reported to have antibacterial effects against S. pyogenes. Hence these medicinal plants also have antimicrobial activities. The antibacterial properties of the herbal plants reported in this review have been confirmed, this active ingredients of these plants are natural antibiotics. © 2017, Pharmainfo Publications.
