We study the existence of positive solutions of a linear elliptic equation with critical Sobolev exponent in a nonlinear Neumann boundary condition. We prove a result which is similar to a classical result of Brezis and Nirenberg who considered a corresponding problem with nonlinearity in the equation. Our proof of the fact that the dimension three is critical use a new Pohozaev-type identity.
