We consider the polynomials obtained from the little -Jacobi polynomials by inserting a discrete mass at in the orthogonality measure. We show that for , the polynomials are eigensolutions of a linear -difference operator of order with polynomial coefficients. This provides a -analog of results recently obtained for the Krall polynomials.
