This paper deals with the problem of robust stabilization of neutral timedelay systems using  proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) controller. A graphical approach which will obtain the set of robust stabilizing PID controllers is presented. The main point in this approach is the frequency response of the neutral system, which can effectively reduce the mathematical  complexities of system modeling. It is shown that our the proposed method is effective and  useful for many of real control systems deal with time-delays and parametric uncertainties. It is illustrated by an example at the end.
