In the title compound, [PtI2(C5H5NO)2]·2(CH3)2SO, the PtII 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 mol­ecules and solvent dimethyl sulfoxide mol­ecules are linked by inter­molecular O—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
