In the title compound, [Na(C2H3N2O3)], the Na+ cation lies on a centre of inversion in space group P2(1)/m and all the atoms of the anion lie on a mirror plane. Na is octahedrally coordinated by four O and two N atoms from six different anions and each anion is coordinated to six different Na+ cations, forming chains of confacial octahedra which link the anion layers. Within these layers, the individual anions are linked by both O-H . .O and C-H . . .O hydrogen bonds.
