Abstract: We prove that generalized convex radial solutions to the generalized Monge-Ampère equation $ \det D^2u = f(\vert x\vert^2/2,u,\vert\nabla u\vert^2/2)$ with $ f$ smooth are always smooth away from the origin. Moreover, we characterize the global smoothness of these solutions in terms of the order of vanishing of $ f $ at the origin.
