In the present work we have obtained the equation of state and the population of baryons and leptons to the highly asymmetric dense stellar matter, with the purpose of studying the effects of hyperons on the structure of neutron stars. To this end, we adopted the Zimanyi-Moszkowski model in the mean field approximation. From the equation of state obtained with the model, we solve numerically the Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff (TOV) equation to the internal structure of neutron stars.
