We studied the effect of very large and non-uniform magnetic field existed in the neutron star on the deformation of the neutron star. We used in our analytical calculation, multipole expansion of the tensor metric and the momentum-energy tensor in Legendre polynomial expansion up to the quadrupole order. In this way we obtain the solutions of Einstein's equation with the correction factors due to the magnetic field are taken into account. We obtain from our numerical calculation that the degree of deformation (ellipticity) is increased when the the mass is decreased.
