Abstract: Let $ {\mathbf{R}}$ denote the set of real numbers and $ I$ an open interval of $ {\mathbf{R}}$. A function $ f:I \to R$ is said to be almost $ \delta $-convex iff $ f(tx + (1 - t)y) \leq tf(x) + (1 - t)f(y) + \delta $ holds for all $ (x,y) \in I \times I\backslash N$, where $ N \subset I \times I$ is of measure zero, each $ t \in [0,1]$ and some $ \delta \geq 0$. It is proved that such a function is uniformly close to a convex function almost everywhere.
