Diiodohydroxyquinoline (INN) or iodoquinol (USAN), widely known by the trade name Diodoquin, is a quinoline derivative which can be used in the treatment of amoebiasis.[1]

In the United States this medicine is sold under the names Diquinol, Yodoquinol, and Yodoxin.[2] Yodoxin is available in 210- and 650-mg oral tablet form.[3]
