Abstract: In this paper we shall study the existence of an $S^1$-isovariant map from a rational homology sphere $M$ with pseudofree action to a representation sphere $SW$. We first show some isovariant Borsuk-Ulam type results. Next we shall consider the converse of those results and show that there exists an $S^1$-isovariant map from $M$ to $SW$ under suitable conditions.
