Abstract: We show a Lefschetz fixed point formula for holomorphic functions in a bounded domain $\mathcal{D}$ with smooth boundary in the complex plane. To introduce the Lefschetz number for a holomorphic map of $\mathcal{D}$, we make use of the Bergman kernel of this domain. The Lefschetz number is proved to be the sum of the usual contributions of fixed points of the map in $\mathcal{D}$ and contributions of boundary fixed points, these latter being different for attracting and repulsing fixed points.
