Résumé :

We have imaged at high angular resolution the close environement of the very red source Orion n with NACO at the VLT UT4. We report the detection of a faint point like object 0.6'' away from this source. Assuming a distance of 450<SUB>-50</SUB><SUP>+50</SUP> pc and an age of 1 Myr, the photometry of this candidate companion is consistent with an object of mass 70-150 M<SUB>J</SUB> assuming a visible extinction of A<SUB>V</SUB> = 3-17. The relationship between this object and Orion n is discussed hereafter.
