Abstract     Introduction: Post mortem examination has evolved through a protean range of interest but remains a bench mark in the study of human disease. It has been performed for thousands of years but it was until the 18th century that they became recognized as being fundamental to medical practice. Aims and Objectives: Study of Liver cell dysplasia as an incidental finding in Liver Autopsy. Material and Methodology: The core material forming the basis of this study comprised of 100 specimens of liver obtained from post mortem examinations done in the Forensic medicine department of Madras Medical College Chennai. The study was a prospective one done during a period of six months from consecutive autopsies during a span of January 2007 to July 2007. Post mortems done in our institutions are usually cases of road / railway accidents, poisoning and fall. Result: Out of the 100 cases, 49 showed a normal histology. Fatty change was the most predominant finding accounting to 25% (n=25) with steatosis in 17 cases (17%) and 8 cases (8%) showing accompanying hepatitis component. Chronic venous congestion was the next common morphological finding which was seen in 12 cases (12%). Six cases (6%) showed features of chronic hepatitis, 4 cases (4%) of cirrhosis and 2 cases of each metastasis and liver cell dysplasia (2% each) were seen. Liver cell dysplasia was seen in 2 cases, both in age group of 71-80 years with one male and one female. None of the referred studies reported cases of liver cell dysplasia. Conclusion: In our study Liver cell dysplasia was seen in 2 cases, both in age group of 71-80 years with one male and one female so approximately the Prevalence of the Liver cell dysplasia was found to be 2%.
