Abstract: A short proof is given of a result due to Avakumović. More specifically the asymptotic behavior of the solution $ y\left( x \right) \to 0\left( {x \to \infty } \right)$ of the differential equation $ y'' = \phi \left( x \right){y^\lambda }\left( {\lambda > 1} \right)$ in case $ \phi \left( {tx} \right)/\phi \left( x \right) \to {t^\sigma }\left( {x \to \infty } \right),\sigma > - 2$ is given.
