**ABSTRACT:**
By means of the method of upper and lower solutions together with the Schauder fixed point theorem,
the conditions for the existence of at least one positive solution are established for some higher-order singular
infinite-point fractional differential equation with p-Laplacian. The nonlinear term may be singular with respect to
both the time and space variables.

**KEYWORDS:**
Fractional differential equations, p-Laplacian, Singularity, Upper and lower solutions, Positive solution
