Abstract: We find necessary and sufficient conditions for a spectral differential equation

$\displaystyle {L_N}[y](x) = \sum\limits_{i = 1}^N {{\ell _i}(x){y^{(i)}}(x) = {\lambda _n}y(x)} $

to have Sobolev orthogonal polynomials of solutions, which are orthogonal relative to the Sobolev (pseudo-) inner product

$\displaystyle \phi (p,q) = \int_\mathbb{R}^{} {pqd\mu + \int_\mathbb{R}^{} {p'q'dv,} } $

where $ d\mu $ and $ dv$ are signed Borel measures having finite moments. This result generalizes a result by H. L. Krall, which handles the case when $ dv = 0$.
