In the title compound, C12H9BrN4O, the dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 12.16 (12)°. An intramolecular N-HN hydrogen bond closes an S(5) ring. In the crystal, C-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into C(6) chains propagating in . Very weak aromatic - stacking [centroid-centroid separations = 3.9189 (15) and 3.9357 (15) Å] is also observed.
