Abstract: 
Nowadays, health tourism is known as an important and growing phenomenon in the world. Since previous decades Iran has been known as one of the famous destinations of health tourism in the Middle East. During recent years some worries about ethical aspects of health tourism has been growing in different parts of the world. In this study, we will try to demonstrate ethical issues around health tourism and its situation in Iran. Our focus will be on three important contexts of health tourism in the country and it includes: organ transplantation assisted reproductive technologies and therapeutic abortion. For our data collection we review all possible sources using related key words in English and Farsi in scientific databases include SID, Pubmed, Magiran, Iran Medex, Google Scholar as well as newspapers, online news, web pages and books. Our first search gave us about 230 hints and finally included 57 items in our review based on the papers title and abstract. Our findings show that the existence of some related regulations regarding ethical issues in health tourism encourages some foreigners to seek health services in Iran, there is no appropriate ethical guidelines in the Iranian health system for handling the issue of health tourism. Finally we recommend more experimental works to explore the ethical issues related to health tourism and developing related guidelines.
