In this note we discuss the existence and symmetry breaking of least energy solutions for certain weighted elliptic equations in the unit ball in , with zero Dirichlet boundary conditions. We prove a multiplicity result, which answers one of the questions we left open in  regarding a Brezis-Nirenberg type problem.
