Purpose of the study: Radioiodine (RAI) has been used for the treatment of hyperthyroidism and well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma for more than 70 years. Lycopene is an anti-oxidant, which is plentiful in red fruits. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible inhibitory effect of lycopene on the RAI-induced acute histopathological changes in rat lacrimal glands.
