The androgen receptor (AR) exists in normal liver as well as in human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues. Recent studies revealed that AR plays an important role in hepatitis B viral as well as hepatitis C viral hepatocarcinogenesis. The targeting of AR might be developed as a new therapeutic option against HCC. This article provides information regarding the association between AR and HCC.
