Excretion of a radioiodine in human milk following a therapeutic dose of I-131

Rubow S. ; Klopper J. (1988)


An investigation of 131I excretion into human milk after a therapeutic dose of 5142 MBq (139 mCi) 131I, in a patient who has had a thyroidectomy is presented. During the first 36 h, 17.4% of the administered dose was excreted into the milk. In addition to the known radiation risk, this may affect the quantity of 131I retained by the thyroid and metastases.
