We deal with the self-similar singular solution of doubly singular parabolic equation with a gradient absorption term for , and in . By shooting and phase plane methods, we prove that when there exists self-similar singular solution, while there is no any self-similar singular solution. In case of existence, the self-similar singular solution is the self-similar very singular solutions which have compact support. Moreover, the interface relation is obtained.
