In the title compound, [PtI(2)(C(5)H(5)NO)(2)]·2(CH(3))(2)SO, the Pt(II) ion lies on an inversion center and is coordinated in a slightly distorted square-planar environment by two trans iodide ligands and two pyridine N atoms. In the crystal, complex mol-ecules and solvent dimethyl sulfoxide mol-ecules are linked by inter-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
