A singular Cauchy-Nicoletti problem for a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations is considered. With the aid of combination of Ważewski's topological method and Schauder's principle, the theorem concerning the existence of a solution of this problem (having the graph in a prescribed domain) is proved.
