Introduction: Mushroom species have been used for medical purposes and as nutrients since the old times. The present study aimed to determine phenolic content, antioxidant activity and heavy metal content of Cyclocybe cylindracea (DC.) Vizzini & Angelini mushroom. Materials and Methods: Phenolic contents were screened with HPLC devices. TAS, TOS and OSI values were determined using Rel Assay kits. Heavy metal content were determined with atomic absorption method using an atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Result and Discussion: Gallic acid, hesperidin, catechin, syringic acid and hydroxybenzoic acid were detected in the mushroom. It was determined that the heavy metal content in C. cylindracea were generally at optimal levels and the TOS value of mushroom was high. Conclusion: C. cylindracea could be consumed as a good antioxidant source as long as it is obtained from safe areas.

Key words: Cyclocybe cylindracea, Antioxidant, Oxidant, Oxidative stress, Heavy metal, Phenolic contents.
