Abstract: We establish conditions under which the extended Hardy-Little- wood inequality

\begin{displaymath}\int \limits_{\mathbb{R} ^N} H\big{(}\vert x\vert,\, u_1(x), ... ...ig{(}\vert x\vert,\, u_1^*(x), \ldots , u_m^*(x)\big{)}\, dx, \end{displaymath}

where each $u_i$ is non-negative and $u_i^*$ denotes its Schwarz symmetrization, holds. We also determine appropriate monotonicity assumptions on $H$ such that equality occurs in the above inequality if and only if each $u_i$ is Schwarz symmetric. We end this paper with some applications of our results in the calculus of variations and partial differential equations.
