A remarkable fundamental theorem established by Mehta plays an important role in proving existence of fixed points, maximal elements, and equilibria in abstract economies. In this paper, we extend Himmelberg's measure of precompactness to the general setting of l.c.-spaces and obtain a generalization of Mehta's theorem. As an application, we develop some new fixed point theorems involving a kind of condensing mappings.
