Abstract: For an $ m$-dimensional differential inclusion of the form

$\displaystyle \dot x \in A(t)x(t) + F[t,x(t)],$

with $ A$ and $ F$ $ T$-periodic in $ t$, we prove the existence of a nonconstant periodic solution. Our hypotheses require $ m$ to be odd, and require $ F$ to have different growth behavior for $ \left\vert x \right\vert$ small and $ \left\vert x \right\vert$ large (often the case in applications). The idea is to guarantee that the topological degree associated with the system has different values on two distinct neighborhoods of the origin.
