Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most prevalent tumor of the liver presenting as a malign epithelial cancer. There are studies which have shown that there is a causal relationship between mutant p53 which is a tumor supressor gene and a pathogenesis of HCC. In this study the expression of mutant p53 and its correlation's with the ethnology, the number of nodules and histopathologic al type have been investigated in the tissue samples of 52 cases with the diagnosis of HCC. As the result, mutant p53 has been detected in the 50% of the cases. However, there was no correlation with gender, age, the number of nodules, the diameter of the tumor, HBV seropositivity, HCV seropositivity, alcohol consumption and histopathology.
