In the title compound, C10H8N2·C4H8N2O2, both the dimethylglyoxime and the 4,4'-bipyridine molecules have crystallographic Ci symmetry. The molecules stack along the a-axis direction with a dihedral angle of 20.4 (8)° between their planes. In the crystal, the components are linked by O-H...N hydrogen bonds into alternating chains along [120] and [1[\overline2]0].
