Endophytic fungus is an endosymbiont which colonize healthy plant without causing any harm. These are relatively unexplored producers of metabolites useful to pharmaceutical industries. These are divided into four classes. These fungi protect plant from insect attack and diseases. They are potential source of biologically synthesized silver nanoparticles. Silver nanoparticles are environment friendly and a very good choice of antimicrobial agent. The metabolite produced by the endophytic fungus used as alternative source of antimicrobial agent against clinical pathogens. These are also sources of anticancer, antidiabetic, insecticidal and immunosuppressive compound. Keywords: Endophytic, nanoparticles, biological synthesis
