Abstract: We prove that if $ G$ is a finite group and $ p$ is a prime such that the degree of every real-valued irreducible complex, respectively real-valued irreducible $ p$-Brauer character, of $ G$ is coprime to $ p$, then $ \mathbf {O}^{p'}(G)$ is solvable. This result is a generalization of the celebrated Ito-Michler theorem for real ordinary characters, respectively real Brauer characters, with Frobenius-Schur indicator $ 1$.
