Introduction: Infant less than five years mortality is one of developing health index in countries. In recent years under five years mortality rates has been decreased in our country but still is higher than the developed countries. Thus we prompted to investigate some causes in infant under 1-59 month mortality during 2006. Methods: This is a descriptive study which conducted during 2006.In this study 93 cases were selected using census sampling. Data collected by Infant mortality registering checklists that confirmed by Health and treatment service ministry of Iran. These checklists filled by educated critics’ personnel. Researcher et al exploited data by analysis in registered checklists then converted data to digital form and analyzed by SPSS software. Results: Finding showed that 93 deaths occurred. The most frequency of them related to 1-12 months age (57%) that 37% of cases were female and 63% of them were male. Majority causes from death is collisions & accidents (27%). Mortality from respiratory diseases was 18/3 percent and gastrointestinal diseases 15/2 percent. Majority failure in treatment causes is Insensibility in parent due to treatment (76%) and insistence of parent to discharge their infant from hospital because they were so impecunious to paid treatment costs (12%). Conclusion: Our finding showed that Infant mortality rate in this city was higher than country rate which has various reasons that one of these reasons was rise in collisions rate. Thus it is essential to perform implementations to reduce collisions rate as well as it essential to perform effective implementation for maternal and newborn care, infant and newborn nutrition's, vaccination, control and management of diseases such as diarrhea and pneumonia. For neglects in treatment educational planning must be proposed.
