The author establishes an a priori estimate of the \(C^ 0\)-norm of a solution to the equation \(H_ m(u)=H\) in a bounded domain \(\Omega \subset {\mathbb{R}}^ n\); here \(H_ m\) is the m-th elementary symmetric function of the principal curvatures of the graph of \(u=u(x)\), \(x\in {\bar \Omega}\). The estimate is established under conditions on H and \(\Omega\) generalizing an analogous condition known in the case of mean curvature \(H_ 1\).
