In the title compound, [Cd(C10H7N6)2(H2O)2], the CdII atom lies on an inversion centre and is coordinated by four N atoms from 5-[4-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)phenyl]tetrazol-1-ide ligands and two O atoms from the coordinated water molecules in an octahedral arrangement. The complex polymeric chains are interconnected via intermolecular water O-HN hydrogen bonds into a three-dimensional network.
