Abstract: Let $ M$ be a 5-dimensional Riemannian manifold with $ Sec_M\in [0,1]$ and $ \Sigma $ be a locally conformally flat closed hypersurface in $ M$ with mean curvature function $ H$. We prove that there exists $ \varepsilon _0>0$ such that

$\displaystyle \int _\Sigma (1+H^2)^2 \ge \frac {4\pi ^2}{3}\chi (\Sigma ),$ (1)

provided $ \vert H\vert \le \varepsilon _0$, where $ \chi (\Sigma )$ is the Euler number of $ \Sigma $. In particular, if $ \Sigma $ is a locally conformally flat minimal hypersphere in $ M$, then $ Vol(\Sigma ) \ge 8\pi ^2/3$, which partially answers a question proposed by Mazet and Rosenberg. Moreover, we show that if $ M$ is (some special but large class) rotationally symmetric, then the inequality (1) holds for all $ H$.
