Abstract: Let $ X$ be a Banach space, $ D \subset X$. A mapping $ U:D \to X$ is said to be pseudo-contractive if for all $ u,v \in D$ and all $ r > 0$, $ \vert\vert u - v\vert\vert \leqq \vert\vert(1 + r)(u - v) - r(U(u) - U(v))\vert\vert$. This concept is due to F. E. Browder, who showed that $ U:X \to X$ is pseudo-contractive if and only if $ I - U$ is accretive. In this paper it is shown that if $ X$ is a uniformly convex Banach, $ B$ a closed ball in $ X$, and $ U$ a Lipschitzian pseudo-contractive mapping of $ B$ into $ X$ which maps the boundary of $ B$ into $ B$, then $ U$ has a fixed point in $ B$. This result is closely related to a recent theorem of Browder.
