The effect of the infrared excess on inverse Compton gamma-ray production in the pulsar binary system PSR B1259-63/SS 2883 is considered. The infrared excess is calculated using catalogue observations and the exact Compton cross-section is used to calculate the expected gamma-ray spectra for an isotropic distribution of target photon.
