This study aimed at investigating the prevalence and causes of peptic ulcers in Iran using systematic review and meta-analysis. Materials and Methods: Eleven Iranian papers published from 2002 to 2016 are selected using valid keywords in the SID, Goggle scholar, PubMed and Elsevier databases. Results of studies pooled using random effects model in meta-analysis. The heterogeneity of the sample was checked using Q test and I-2 index. Results: Total sample size in this study consist of 1335 individuals with peptic ulcer (121 samples per article). The prevalence of peptic ulcers was estimated 34 (95 CI=0.25 -0.43). The prevalence of peptic ulcers was 30 and 60 in woman and man respectively. The highest environmental factor (cigarette) has been addressed in 30 (95 CI=0.23-0.37) of patients. The prevalence of Helicobacter pylori was estimated in 62 (95 CI=0.49-0.75) of patients. Conclusion: The results of this study show that prevalence of peptic ulcers in Iran (34) is higher that worldwide rate (6 to 15). There was an increasing trend in the prevalence of peptic ulcer over a decade from 2002 to 2016.
