In the title compound, C22H18BrN5O4, the central six-membered ring, derived from 1,4-di-hydro-pyridine, adopts a distorted boat conformation with a puckering amplitude of 0.197 (3) Å, the imidazole ring adopts a twisted conformation with a puckering amplitude of 0.113 (3) Å, and the oxindole moiety is planar with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.0125 Å. Two intra-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds are formed, each closing an S(6) loop. In the crystal, strong N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds lead to the formation of zigzag chains along the c axis. These are consolidated in the three-dimensional crystal packing by weak N-H⋯O hydrogen bonding, as well as by C-H⋯O, C-H⋯Br and C-H⋯π inter-actions. A small region of electron density well removed from the main mol-ecule was removed with the SQUEEZE procedure in PLATON [Spek (2009 ▶). Acta Cryst. D65, 148-155] following unsuccessful attempts to model it as a plausible solvent mol-ecule. The unit-cell characteristics do not take into account this feature of the structure.
