Abstract: We prove that the least-energy solution of the problem

\begin{displaymath}\left\{ \begin{array}{ll} -d\Delta u+u=u^p\quad&\mbox{ in }B,\\ u>0\quad&\mbox{ in }B,\\ {{\partial u}\over{\partial\nu}}=0\quad&\mbox{ on }\partial B, \end{array}\right.\end{displaymath}

where $B$ is a ball, $d>0$ and $1<p<{{N+2}\over{N-2}}$ if $N\ge 3$, $p>1$ if $N=2$, is unique (up to rotation) if $d$ is small enough.
