In the title Schiff base, C13H9Cl2NO2, which arose from the condensation of 3, 4-dichloroaniline with 2, 3-dihydroxy-benzaldehyde, the dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 44.74 (13)°. Intramolecular O - H⋯O and O - H⋯N hydrogen bonds close S(5) and S(6) rings, respectively. In the crystal, inversion dimers linked by pairs of O - H⋯O hydrogen bonds generate R 22(10) loops. A weak C - H⋯π interaction is also observed.
