**Abstract:** In this paper, we prove that if $k$ and $d$ are two positive integers such that the product of any two distinct elements of the set $\{k+2, 4k, 9k+6,d\}$ increased by 4 is a perfect square, then $d=36k^3 + 96k^2 + 76k + 16$.

**Keywords:** Diophantine m-tuples, Pell equations, Baker's method
