Background/aim: Helicobacter pylori is an important human pathogen associated with gastric and duodenal ulcers, gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma, and adenocarcinoma. Radioiodine (RAI) treatment plays an important role in the management of differentiated thyroid cancer and primary hyperthyroidism. It is known that during RAI treatment, a considerable amount is absorbed by the stomach as well. In this study we aimed to reveal any therapeutic impact of RAI on H. pylori infections.
